In 2021, the European MOOCs Stakeholders Summit (EMOOCs) and the ACM conference Learning @ Scale (L@S) will be held jointly from June 22 to 25.
The conferences welcome contributions about MOOCs and large-scale technology-mediated education from stakeholders worldwide, including researchers and practitioners.
While the event is set to take place at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany, contributors will have the option to present their papers remotely.
The main submission deadline is February 15, 2021.
EMOOCs welcomes contributions exploring all facets of massive open online courses, usually with a focus on European MOOC initiatives. In 2021, however, EMOOCs will also include an International Track that aims to shine a spotlight on global MOOC initiatives, with an emphasis on regions of the world traditionally underrepresented at these conferences.
EMOOCs welcomes contributions in the following tracks:
- Future: Envisioning what comes next in the world of MOOCs.
- Business: Focusing on MOOC monetization and delivery to and by companies.
- Experience: Discussing MOOCs in practice, from development to delivery.
- International: Looking at MOOC research and practice around the globe.
- Policy: Addressing political issues surrounding MOOCs and their social impact.
- Health: Looking at the present and future role of MOOCs in the health sector.
- Workshop: Exploring MOOCs through a participatory approach.
Each track accepts different types of submissions, from lightweight proposals to full papers. The submission deadline for all tracks is February 15, 2021. You can find more information here.
Learning @ Scale 2021
Learning @ Scale welcomes contributions exploring all forms of education where instruction is augmented through technology for delivery to a large number of learners. In 2021, the conference is particularly interested in contributions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, which prompted many institutions to transition to online teaching.
Learning @ Scale welcomes contributions about the following topics:
- Intelligence: Exploring how artificial intelligence can serve at-scale education.
- Instruction: Envisioning how to scale up instruction to reach large audiences.
- Systems & Tools: Looking at novel systems that support at-scale learning.
- Studies & Interventions: Considering stakeholders’ views in learning at scale.
- Synthesis: Reviewing and bringing together existing learning-at-scale research.
The conference accepts different types of submissions, including full papers, work-in-progress, demonstrations, and workshops. The main submission deadline is February 15, 2021, but full papers’ abstracts are due a week earlier, on February 8. You can find more information here.
