Call for abstracts for this year’s conference is now open. We recommend you read this page and check out the abstract guidelines and tips page before submitting your abstract (links to the abstract portal are at the bottom of both pages).
An abstract is a summary of ideas you would like to present, workshop and share at uLearn21. Accepted abstracts form the breakout programme for the online conference. Abstracts can be submitted in English, te reo Māori or bilingually (te reo Māori and English).
uLearn21's overarching theme is Aotearoa e tōnui nei | Thriving Aotearoa, supported by four sub-themes:
Plan your abstract to address one or more of the sub-themes. Head to the theme page to explore outlined thinking behind Thriving Aotearoa.
Call for abstracts closes 24 May 2021.
If your abstract is accepted, you will be notified by 4 June 2021.
The uLearn21 programming committee will consider all abstracts submitted and determine which submissions will be included in the programme, based on the following criteria:
With uLearn online this year, presenters will be offered information and support so you can learn and understand the digital platform we’re using. We’ll provide tips and suggestions on how to present online so that you feel confident and prepared for your breakout session.
A variety of formats are available. You could opt for running an interactive workshop, delivering a presentation, or sharing your research. All formats are available in both 25 and 55 minute options.
Note: all uLearn sessions will be recorded and have facilitated live chat enabled. All sessions will be available to delegates for 90 days post-uLearn.
Participants will be actively engaged during the workshop using equipment, and/or will be able to follow the presenter using digital tools or equipment as a demonstration (eg. tablets, iPads, computers, apps, extensions, websites, materials.)
Please note: delegates will need to bring the specified equipment or know what they need to download (eg. app).
Session formats are: present, demonstration, panel discussion, or lecture. Presenters should allow for interactivity and question time within the session.
This involves the presentation of a research project or inquiry, followed by a discussion (time allowing). A peer-reviewed selection process applies to these sessions. Research and Inquiry sessions are designed for educators and researchers, therefore not suitable for sponsors, partners and exhibitors. Learn more about these sessions.
