Abstract submissions are now closed.
The University of Southern Queensland’s UniSQ College is issuing a Call for Papers for a one-day colloquium, A New Agenda for Pathways Education and Research Colloquium 2023.
We invite empirical, theoretical, conceptual, and methodological contributions that advance debates about non-traditional pathways into higher education or widening participation. We encourage genuine risk-taking and innovation; contributions can be exploratory in nature, and should involve novel ideas that move discussions beyond current arguments in this field. Submissions should therefore carve a way forward for non-incremental ground-breaking research in pathways education by challenging current praxis.
Themes can include but are not limited to:
- Pathways to higher education
- Academic literacies
- Academic numeracy
- Carceral education
- Culturally and linguistically diverse teaching and learning
- Digital literacy
- Educational technology
- Enabling education
- EAL/ESL student learning
- English for Academic Purposes
- Equity, diversity, and inclusion
- National and international perspectives
- Innovative pathways pedagogies
- Online learning and pedagogy
- Student support
- Widening participation, past, present, and future
Submissions can include the following:
- Abstract submissions of 150-200 words.
- Research talks: 15 minute presentations followed by 10 minutes of discussion.
- Provocations: 25 minute roundtable discussions that can cover work in progress and untested ideas. Submissions should provoke new and critical insights that can facilitate future collaborations.
This colloquium will include an exciting announcement about a new publishing venture in the field of pathways to higher education.
The format will be hybrid. The in-person colloquium will be held on the UniSQ Springfield campus. In-person and online presentations will be possible.
