WLS 2021 OFFERS THREE DIFFERENT CALLS.
The long and short papers are identical in process but different in length and purpose. All papers are double blind peer reviewed, with a length of either 10 manuscript pages or 5 manuscript pages. The category of shorter papers includes “project presentations” and “papers in process” with less strict empirical requirements. Submitted papers will be reviewed within five weeks.
Workshops and panels will be reviewed on the basis of submitted abstracts. Hosting workshops and panels require a confirmation of at least four signed on summit participants in addition to the host.
Flyers and posters offer presenters a means of showing work not fitting into the usual scholarly paper categories. Flyers and posters are launched ahead of the summit and stay up afterwards, offering presenters a stable url for their work.
WLS is a non-profit operation. Accordingly, we ask presenters for a small fee in order to cover our expenses keeping the website up, minor production costs and printing the WLS proceedings. Check out the sign-up page.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a key theme for plenary sessions at WLS 2021 and also a potential theme for submissions of papers, panels and workshops. The past year has challenged students, educators and managers alike. These challenges have some common features, independent of place in the world. Some challenges are more particular, also offering means of comparison. Despite vaccination and reflecting globally uneven access to vaccination, one long-term scenario will be reduced travel and thereby student and teacher mobility. New approaches to combining&blending online and offline learning will likely emerge.
As the WLS team is putting up plenary panels om the theme, we particularly invite papers and flyers/posters. Please confer the template and potential sub themes below. Generally, please also suggest other main themes and sub themes.
– COVID-19 — disruptive change
– Students’ well being
– Education transformation
– Teachers’ challenges
– Campus communication
– Coping with exceptions
– North/South challenges posted by COVID-19
