Call for Demos

Call for demos is now closed

Even though traditional curricula approaches are limiting the potential of people’s learning, there are notable examples of teacher- and school-led innovation, evolving technology-enabled pedagogy and personal learning in every country around the world,. The very nature of knowledge is changing, and pedagogies should evolve in order to take better advantage of the affordances that technology provides. Objectives and competencies, nature and weight of content, methodologies for teaching and learning, and assessment methods and techniques should be rethought to make educational systems better serve the interests and needs of the citizens. Sometimes they even go ahead of research, thus marking new directions. We encourage you to showcase your innovative project or experiment in educational practice, even if it is in process of development yet. This could be a good opportunity to make an informative and relevant case out of it, to share your results, successful practice, but also your doubts.

Accepted demos will have 20 minutes to demonstrate the case and then will be followed by 20 minutes of discussion with other speakers and participants.

We expect the presentations to be specific and practical, rather than theoretical or analytical, and address any level of education.

In particular, the seminar organizers are keen to receive proposals that:

  • Are based on or supported by research (or not!)
  • Demonstrate an experimental or alternative approach to coursework, curriculum, assessment, etc (see "Suggested Topics" on Presentation menu)
  • Are related to issues of social inclusion and development
  • Stimulate and provoke a good discussion

Format requirements for Demo Proposals

  • A text document with an Executive Summary of the proposed presentation, including the essence of the innovation and reference to the main topics of the (max. 1 page).
  • You may include any references or links to additional reading materials at the end of the document.
  •   Provide a short bio of the author/s.

Submission deadline: Proposals should be sent by email to by October 7.

Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of faculty peers.

Notification of acceptance and additional information will be provided before the end of October.

Please note that also speakers and demo presenters need to register
