Call for papers

Who should submit?
Contributors. If you would like to participate as a Contributor in the workshop, you are required to submit a paper by  April 1 April 8. Accepted papers will be presented and discussed during the workshop, and serve as seed ideas for joint scientific publications to be shared among a broader community, possibly via a special issue of a scientific journal.
Commentators. If you would like to participate as a Commentator, you do not need to send a paper. 

Please note that both Contributors and Commentators are required to register to the workshop in the ICLS Website.

Timeline
April 1 April 8        Submission deadline for papers

  • How to support teacher-designers in their tasks
  • Design and collaborative design as a form of professional development 
  • Design cognitions; and/or
  • Participatory design as an implementation strategy.
Procedure
Following a structured review process by the workshop organizers, approximately 12 of the best papers will be selected and invited for inclusion. Authors of accepted papers will be asked to address reviewer concerns in the revised papers that they will present in the workshop. All participants will be given access to all papers, and encouraged to read especially those that have been clustered into the same (emergent) theme as their own. Contributors will be asked to send a brief presentation (3 ppt slides) to the organizers the week before the workshop. During the workshop, authors' contributions will provide seed ideas for within-theme syntheses and joint scientific publications, which will be finalized after the workshop in activities aimed at publication in a special issue.
