Types of contributions

Individual papers
Individual papers will be presented within the framework of parallel sessions. If possible, papers will be arranged in thematic groups. Each presentation will be allocated about 20 minutes of time, followed by 10 minutes of discussion.
The aim of a workshop is to create an interactive and active learning forum in which scholars and practitioners can be inspired by colleagues. A workshop will take one and a half hours.
The aim of poster presentations is to provide a forum for researchers who are not yet able to present their results, but want to discuss their research design, methods etc., or to provide a forum for practitioners who want to discuss a design for in-service learning practice. The posters will be linked to opportunities for round table discussions.
A symposium is a group of 2 to 4 presentations (preferably 2 or 3 speakers plus a discussant) devoted to a specific topic and is one and a half to two hours in length. Proposals should address topics of broad concern to the participants. Symposia should be submitted as single submissions by the symposium organiser/convenor.
