Call For Papers

Design, learning, and innovation frame the world of ICT, play and playfulness opening doors into an increasingly playful world. The DLI 2018 conference is driven by the belief that tools, technologies, environments, as well as content and approaches can spark and nurture a passion for learning, transforming domains such as education, rehabilitation/therapy, work places, and cultural institutions.  Design, learning, and innovation is a powerful catalyst in empowering individuals to participate, communicate, and create, whereby they can exceed their own limits in a playful way. Making this spirit explicit and visible is crucial to identify how specific tools, technologies, methodologies and solutions shape opportunities for learning and engaging with the demands of today’s world. More than ever, challenges in the fields of design, learning, and innovation are often approached by trans-disciplinary teams and solutions that mobilize tools, technologies, methods and theories from different fields to unlocking new frameworks, opening up to partnerships that can enrich learning in formal and informal learning practices. DLI 2018 intends to foster such dynamics.

Academics, designers, researchers, and practitioners with a background in the fields of design, learning, and innovation towards creating, shaping, incubating playful learning designs, tools, technologies, experiences, processes, and outcomes, are invited to contribute to and participate in the DLI 2018. The conference asks for submission of papers and posters (WIP) as well as proposals for workshops and symposiums.
