LINQ 2014 and EFQUEL Innovation Forum - "mega-conference" call for papers

In 2014, the LINQ conference will take place in cooperation with the EFQUEL Innovation Forum to form a “mega-conference” on the theme of quality in open education. 

Technological and pedagogical innovations have rapidly been making their way into the education mainstream over the past few years, but there has been a lack of evaluation of these changes. Tools and standards for quality evaluation and models for development are needed in order to guide educators and policy-makers in their decisions.

LINQ 2014 is seeking scientific paper submissions, as well as proposals for interactive workshop sessions such as learning café sessions, debate formats, thematic table workshops, etc. Contributions to the conference should focus on one or more of the following areas:

  • Quality indicators and methods to describe, measure and evaluate quality for open education, OER and MOOCs
  • Conceptual contributions on new and innovative quality models, methodologies, standards and approaches for e-learning and open education
  • Experiences and reports from practice with implementation of quality approaches for open education
  • Required competences by institutions as well as by learners for designing, practicing and improving open learning with high quality
  • Local, national, regional and European quality projects in the field of the conference
  • Methodologies for and experience of recognition of open learning in formal education and training
  • Certification of e-learning and open education in institutions, programs and courses
  • Integrated innovation and quality approaches
  • Global aspects of high-quality Open Education (e.g. collaborations, comparative studies, cultural aspects)

The deadline to submit papers is January 10, 2014. All papers will be reviewed by the international Scientific Programme Committee in a hybrid review process: open review process and double blind review combination. Please see the Call for Papers for more information.
