Fourteenth International Conference on e-Learning & Innovative Pedagogies

(Online Only)

University of the Aegean - Rhodes Campus
Rhodes, Greece

5–6 May 2021

Building Resilient Research Communities

Due to current restrictions on entry into Greece, and uncertainty on the date these restrictions will end, we have decided to continue with only the online component of the 2021 conference.
We are nonetheless excited to announce the online conference will be delivered on the CGScholar platform – developed by the Common Ground Media Lab, the research and technology arm of Common Ground Research Networks.
We are moving to bring the conference experience into the digital era. All presenters will be given Presenter Pages: linked to profiles on CGScholar, displaying abstract summary, thematic connection to panelists and peers, ability to add digital media: video, sound, other files. As an alternative, you can also participate online with Audience Passes. And finally, we'll be offering innovative online social spaces to frame serendipitous encounters for personal and professional growth.
All "Blended" registration types will be able to present online in 2021 and in-person (and/or) online in 2022.
This way we build for our Research Network Members flexible, and at the same time resilient, spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.

Themes and Special Focus

The e-Learning & Innovative Pedagogies Research Network is brought together around a common concern for new technologies in learning and an interest to explore possibilities for innovative pedagogies. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary geographic and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.

The Fourteenth International Conference on e-Learning & Innovative Pedagogies features research addressing the following annual themes and special focus:

  • 2021 Special Focus - Transcending Social Distance: Emerging Practices in e-Learning
  • Theme 1: Considering Digital Pedagogies
  • Theme 2: New Digital Institutions and Spaces
  • Theme 3: Technologies of Mediation
  • Theme 4: Designing Social Transformations
