The 2020 conference theme of the EARLI SIG11 is

"Digital Transformation in Teacher Education"

Rapid changes in information and computer technology (ICT) affect learning in schools and universities. Children now have access to ICT early in their life. This experience influences learning and instruction in schools and universities. Teachers need specific knowledge about educational technologies and about an efficient and beneficial implementation into classroom practice. University teachers need to develop didactical methods to enable future teachers to enrich their teaching with ICT. We need to support and educate teachers who can educate the next generation of lawyers, plumbers, doctors, carpenters, and teachers in the best possible way considering the challenges of the digital transformation in almost every aspect of school and university life. To do so requires that we learn more about the impact of digital transformations on teaching and learning in schools and in teacher education programs. Research-based contributions to the conference theme, as well as to other relevant questions of teaching and teacher education are welcome. 
More information can be found at the top of this page. There is the Call for Papers, which includes all relevant information about propopsals for presentations, papers, posters and more. Please do not hesitate to contact us for all conference related questions.
