SIG 6 & 7 Conference 2022

August 22nd – 24th, 2022 in Zollikofen, Switzerland

THEME

We cordially invite you to submit proposals for the 2022 joint Special Interest Group Meeting of EARLI SIG 6 & 7. The aim of this meeting is to share and exchange ideas about your latest research on Instructional Design and/or Technology-Enhanced Learning and Instruction. This meeting’s highlighted theme is:

 

"Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Instructional Design and Technology Across all Educational Levels"

 

To claim that instructional design and technology research is important would be an understatement. Our research is now more important than ever, as the COVID-19 pandemic forced many educational practitioners to rely heavily on various forms of technology to provide their instructions at a distance. Thankfully, our research can inform educational practitioners and provide recommendations on what they should and should not do.

That said, our recommendations are still limited, due to a (too?) heavy focus on well-controlled (lab) research with shorter timeframes, university student samples, and cognitive outcome variables. The real educational world is much more diverse and complex than that. Hence, to truly be able to inform teachers, we will need to draw on different perspectives and conduct more (applied) research at all educational levels. This conference takes a step towards this development.

Please note that the highlighted theme does not impose any restrictions on submissions; all proposals that fit the scope of Instructional Design and/or Technology-Enhanced Learning and Instruction are welcome.

The SIG meeting will be organized by EARLI SIG 6 & 7 in partnership with the Swiss Federal University of Vocational Education and Training SFUVET.

Depending on the COVID-19-related conditions, we strongly hope to welcome you in presence in Zollikofen near Bern for a nice and enriching research meeting!

SUBMISSION

Submissions will be opened from the 10th of January 2022 until the 7th of March 2022 (midnight CEST).

We welcome the following submission types:

 

paperpres

Regular paper presentation

This format allows researchers to present their empirical or theoretical work. Presentations will be scheduled for 20 minutes (15 minutes presentation and 5 minutes discussion). For submitting a proposal, please use the Poster/Paper Proposal Template. The maximal proposal length is 3 pages, including Tables, Figures, and References (but excluding the “authors” page(s)). 

 

not perfect data

No-or-not-perfect data presentations

This format provides presenters the opportunity for presenting and discussing empirical work which is at an early stage (research ideas or work in progress). Presentations will be scheduled for 20 minutes (10 minutes presentations and 10 minutes discussion). For submitting a proposal, please use the Poster/Paper Proposal Template. The maximal proposal length is 3 pages, including Tables, Figures, and References (but excluding the “authors” page(s)).

 

Symposia

Symposia

A limited number of 90 minute slots will be made available for symposia consisting of 3 to 4 closely related papers (regular paper presentations) and a discussant. The contributions should come from at least three different countries (the discussant’s country is included in the count). For submitting a proposal for a symposium, please use the Symposium Proposal Template. The maximal proposal length is 3 pages, including an abstract, Tables, Figures, and References (but excluding the “authors” page(s)). The single paper contributions (see regular paper presentations) have to be attached to the overall proposal.

 

Poster

Poster presentations

We plan for poster sessions of substantial length and with high attendance, making this an interactive presentation format. Poster sessions will be scheduled for 90 minutes. For submitting a proposal, please use the Poster/Paper Proposal Template. The maximal proposal length is 3 pages, including Tables, Figures, and References (but excluding the “authors” page(s)).

 

demo

Demonstrations

During the conference, it will be possible to show software, multimedia products, innovative platforms, and instructional tools that allow innovative research on (technology-enhanced) instructional design. Demonstrations will be scheduled for 45 minutes. For submitting a proposal, please use the Demonstration Proposal Template. The maximal proposal length is 3 pages, including Tables, Figures, and References (but excluding the “authors” page(s)).

 

mentoring

Early-career mentoring

PhD students who attend this conference and present their work (regular paper presentation, no-or-not-perfect-data presentation, or poster presentation) are invited to additionally opt for the early career-mentoring program in which they receive feedback from one of the senior researchers attending the conference. When submitting your proposal, please indicate that you are currently a PhD student and would like to be included in the early career-mentoring program.
