Submission guidelines

Submission deadline (extended): 21 April 2017.

This year we have not defined conference tracks. We hope this encourages submissions that resonate with the overall conference theme, but that make sense in the context of the many disciplines and practices participants may be coming from.

Submission formats

There are a number of submission formats, designed to accommodate participants at different stages and places in their digitally engaged teaching and learning journeys. You can propose any of the following:


Workshops provide an opportunity for hands-on exploration and/or problem solving. They can be organized around a core challenge that participants come together to work on, or around a tool, platform, or concept. Workshops are scheduled for 90 minutes and should be highly participatory.

Presentation of scholarship (creative practice, teaching, research)

Presentations of scholarship give presenters a chance to speak for 10 minutes on their scholarship, or a subject relevant to the conference themes. Presentations will be followed by 20 minutes of discussion. We understand the term ‘scholarship’ to incorporate creative practice, teaching practice and research. You may wish to present a teaching case study, research paper, documentation of a creative practice project, or similar. Please note - the focus here is on fostering interaction, conversation and dialogue.

Panel discussion (2 presenters minimum)

Panels should have a minimum of two participants or presenters. You can either propose a panel discussion, or present a group project in the form of a panel discussion Panels are scheduled for 45 minutes including Q&A time. The emphasis again is on fostering interaction, conversation and dialogue.

Micro teach/micro make

This format is an opportunity to take a playful, creative approach to teaching, making or demonstrating something in 5 minutes. You can use an object, image, text or other materials. Surprise us!
