Call for Papers, Workshops & Panels

Durham College, in collaboration with Ontario Tech University and Technological University Dublin, is hosting the fourth Higher Education in Transformation Symposium (HEIT 2020) from May 4th to 6th, 2020. The HEIT Symposium brings together practitioners, researchers, and policy-makers who are working to reinvent and reinvigorate higher education.

We encourage submissions from practitioners, researchers, policy-makers and graduate students working in the area of higher education. There are four main themes, but submissions in other areas are welcome.

  • Higher education systems and institutions
  • Teaching and learning in higher education
  • Supporting student success in higher education
  • Equity and accessibility in higher education

Workshops and presentations may address these themes either in the broad context of higher education as a whole or in specific disciplinary or professional contexts. We welcome submissions that fall within or cut across these themes and those that address other areas being transformed within higher education.

Workshop formats are flexible and can range from thematically related discussion papers with a roundtable discussion, for thought leadership and insight development, (typically 30-60 minutes in length), to more practical skills development workshops. Proposals for skills-based workshops will need to specify the format of the workshop and any special requirements including time duration. All workshop participants must register for the symposium.

Previous proceedings are available here.
