SFDN Conference 2021: Call for Participation!

SFDN Conference 2021: Call for Participation!

Dear SFDN colleagues

We are very happy to announce the upcoming SFDN conference on 19th February, 2021 at the University of St.Gallen. We want to get into discussions with you (and non SFDN members) on the impact of crises (such as the current one) on experimentation and innovation in higher-education teaching and learning. In order to do so, we are planning the conference face-to-face (with precautions and a contingency plan) with both traditional paper presentations and interactive DisqSpace. We are looking forward to trying out this format with you in St.Gallen!

The conference platform is open now and waiting for your and your colleagues’ proposals. You can submit your proposal from now until 31st October, 2020. 

Please find all information on the conference website, including the link to the conference platform, contact and “practical” information. The conference website is currently under construction, so please visit it from time to time for additional information. 

For all questions regarding the conference, SFDN will offer a webinar with a Q&A session in early September 2020 (see SFDN Programme 2020-2021) . Stay tuned!

Best wishes,

Robert Kordts-Freudinger and the organizing team at the University of St.Gallen
