Call for Papers

AISHE welcomes the submission of abstracts (NB: author account/login required) which address the key conference theme of Responding to Change: Effective Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, within this, one or more of the following specific topics:

  • Fostering Creativity & Reflection in Higher Education
  • Graduates for a Digital Age: Information and Digital Literacy
  • Student Centred Approaches to Learning, Teaching & Research
  • Clustering and Collaboration among Higher Education Institutions
  • Interdisciplinarity in Learning & Teaching
  • Responding to the Changing Student Cohort
  • Engaging Students through Technology Enhanced Learning (elearning, mobile learning, facebook, secondlife, etc.)

The emphasis should be on reflection and evaluation rather than merely on describing what is happening.

Presentation Format/Track

All accepted presentations at the conference will be assigned to one of two presentation formats or conference "tracks":

  • Oral/workshop: Oral presentation of research, evaluation, policy or practice with the emphasis on drawing out lessons for others and involving participants in engaging with your findings.
  • Poster: Posters will be displayed throughout the conference; there will be an assigned programme session specifically for participant discussion with poster presenters.

Abstract Submission

A proposal for presentation at the conference should be submitted in the form of an abstractonly, not to exceed 300 words in length. Note: an author account/login is required in order to submit an abstract.

Refereeing Process

Each abstract will be peer-reviewed by the programme committee for acceptance at the conference against the following criteria:

  • Relevance to the conference theme
  • Clarity and coherence
  • Reflection and evaluation of educational values, practice and or/policy
  • Contribution to scholarship and evaluation of change in higher education

While authors can propose a preferred presentation format (or conference "track"), the programme committee reserves the right to (re-)assign submissions to either oral/workshop or poster presentation track, in the light of overall constraints on the programme schedule.
