LEARNTEC 2020: Call for Papers
Europe’s largest digital-education event is now accepting submissions for the congress and the forums
The Call for Papers for LEARNTEC, Europe’s No. 1 digital-learning congress, is now online. The congress, which takes place simultaneously with the homonymous trade fair from 28 to 30 January 2020, peers into the future of digital education, presents educational projects and connects them with the offers of the trade fair’s exhibitors. Interested parties who would like to participate in the congress have until 19 May 2019 to submit their proposals on suggested topics and speakers.
The objective of the upcoming LEARNTEC congress is to highlight trends and topics in digital education and training. The organizers welcome submissions from representatives of companies and organizations who can report from practical experience, as well as submissions from scientists and academicians. Proposals for innovative learning concepts and, due to the international orientation of the congress, submissions for English-language lectures are likewise welcome.
The following areas of vocational education and training are the focal points of the Call for Papers for the LEARNTEC 2020 Congress:
- Learning contents and their production
- Educational software
- Networked learning
- Education management
- Personnel, learning and coaching
- Hardware and equipment for professional learning
- Educational projects, programmes and organizations
Submissions related to digital education in schools and universities are also welcome. If accepted, these will be integrated into the programme of open forums at the fair.
Submissions should specify: the title of the presentation and a description of its content; the name, position and company of a potential speaker; as well as personal details and contact information about that proposed speaker. The submission should also indicate the superordinate topic (e.g. “learning software”) under which the presentation can be classified. The congress committee of LEARNTEC – i.e. Sünne Eichler, Prof. Peter A. Henning and Jane Hart – will evaluate submitted papers. The criteria for this evaluation will be based on elements of best practice, scientific excellence, innovation and experience. These serve as the basis for the committee’s decision on each paper’s potential inclusion in the final program structure.
