Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Instructional Design and Technology Across all Educational Levels
For the first time, the Swiss Federal University for Vocational Education and Training SFUVET will host the Conference of the EARLI Special Interest Groups 6 & 7 from 22nd to 24th August 2022. 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.
More detailed information about the theme, submission formats and important dates can be found on the SIG 6 & 7 Conference website.
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!
The conference is open to all who are interested in the theme. EARLI SIG membership is not necessary to register for the conference.
