The second international conference on Innovative and Critical Approaches to Higher Education will be held at Roskilde University in Denmark, June 22nd to 24th, 2016. The purpose of the conference is to bring together scholars, students and administrators who are interested in the history, theory, and practice of progressive higher education and wish to rethink and reinvigorate its strong traditions in the globalized context of the 21st century. We are therefore not only interested in papers which contribute to research on progressive higher education and research, but also in examples of best practices. Thus, we invite papers and panels on:
1) The history, theory, and future of progressive higher education. Papers could concern topics such as theories of individual educational thinkers, histories of educational institutions, traditions of interdisciplinary, critical and/or socially engaged research, as well as the possibilities and challenges that these theories, histories and traditions face today. Papers may also deal with new ideas and proposals for the future of progressive higher education.
2) The practice of progressive higher education. Papers could focus on examples of innovative courses, methods of mentoring and supervising, interdisciplinary co-teaching and research, student-centered learning and research as well as collaboration between educational institutions and civil society. For this second group of papers we are not primarily interested in traditional academic papers, but rather in examples and experiences from the everyday practice of education and research.
Proposals for papers and panels should be submitted to email@example.com before March 1st 2016. Abstracts for papers (25 minutes, including discussion) should be no more than 250 words. Panels (1.5 hours, including discussion) can consist of 3-4 papers.
