1: diverse People 

This theme celebrates the diversity of people in learning and teaching and their culture, practice, and knowledge. We encourage submissions that foreground the perspectives of everyone involved in the learning and teaching process in tertiary education.  Our people are:  

  • learners   
  • teachers   
  • learning designers   
  • academic developers   
  • institutions   
  • managers  
  • digital technologists  
  • iwi and other first nations people.   

2: deeper Partnerships

Through partnerships we reaffirm our relationships, alliances, collaborations, and connections with each other. Partnerships could be : 

  • between people in different roles  
  • across disciplines and departments within an institution  
  • between internal and external stakeholders  
  • across institutions  
  • between pedagogy and research   
  • within the community   

We encourage submissions which explore partnerships which enhance digital pedagogy, success for all learners, or taking care of our collective wellbeing.   

    3: digital Pedagogy 

    In this theme, we draw on the perspective of digital where the dichotomies of ‘face-to-face’ and ‘online’, ‘natural’ and ‘artificial, ‘human’ and ‘non-human’, ‘pedagogical’ and ‘technological’ are viewed as inseparable from each other.   

    Submissions that examine the complexity of learning and teaching in a digital world are encouraged. These could include : 

    • online, blended, hybrid,  hyflex and other post-pandemic pedagogies,   
    • emergent pedagogies related to AR, AI, VR, MR and other evolving tools and technologies  
    • critical insights into the role of digital technologies in tertiary education   
    • the relationship between people and technology  
    • post-digital
