About the conference
Today’s world is in a state of permanent and radical change which is affecting society, science and the economy in equal measure. In this process universities, as research institutions, are major and active protagonists. To prepare their graduates, however, they must also adapt their teaching to the new scenario of change. They must set new objectives, and be ready to deploy innovative approaches to teaching, learning and curriculum design.

In times of change, examples of good practice and innovative teaching and learning forms from around the world are key to identifying and developing robust, functional models and concepts. The goal of the ICED 2020 conference at ETH Zurich is to foster a future-oriented exchange and discussion among ICED members on how university faculty may be enabled to forge, from the students of today, the future-ready graduates of tomorrow.

In addition to keynote speeches and plenary panel discussions, conference presentation formats will involve presentations for parallel sessions; workshops; shorter panel discussions; and posters. We look forward to receiving many abstracts which address the interesting and timely conference topic, and this broad range of formats. For this purpose reviewers are needed.
