Towards culturally-situated learning design and research

Second Call For Proposals
Proposals Close – July 12, 11:59PM (EST), 2020

AECT 2020 Virtual Conference is inviting proposals that are aligned with the theme Towards culturally-situated learning design and research. We not only encourage submissions from the U.S. members and non-members, but also extend our warm invitation to the international researchers (both members and non-members) to this virtual conference. We will pay special attention to various time zones and accommodate presentation schedules for presenters not only from the U.S., but international presenters from outside the U.S.

In this conference, culture is broadly defined as a system of shared beliefs, values, goals, customs, and behaviors held by members of a community that distinguish themselves from another community. In the context of learning design and research, examples include being responsive to the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and beliefs that learners bring to the educational setting, and being sensitive to learners needs and community culture. Issues to be investigated may include instructional design and research in cross-cultural contexts from a global perspective, equity and justice issues for underrepresented population, socially and economically disadvantaged learners, or disparity issues regarding access to technologies and resources (e.g., digital divide, pedagogical divide, and resource divide).

This convention theme is intended to encourage AECT members to strive for understanding the culture of a group, organization, community, or society in the practice of learning design and research in order to make impactful contributions to the field. Instructional designers and educational researchers can only gain a deeper understanding of inquiry questions and critical issues through social construction and negotiation of meaning in the rich social and cultural contexts.
