The conference brings together innovators, designers, educators, academics and students from K-12, post-secondary and government to rise to the challenge of designing for today’s new learning landscape.

Presenters in this conference are invited each year to submit papers for the Proceedings of the IDEAS Conference. The papers undergo a double-blind peer-review process that involves a minimum of two people reviewing each proposal. The reviewers’ feedback helps to inform the acceptance of the paper. This process comprises up to two rounds of reviews and corrections. The acceptance policy is summarized as follows.

  1. In accordance to the mandate of the conference regarding innovation and evidence-informed decisions, proposals are required to address the following questions: What does the research say about your particular innovative practice? How does this innovative practice live in the teaching and learning in your context? When studying this practice, what has been discovered through the research that is informing next steps?
  2. Proposals need to be accepted by at least one reviewer in order to be accepted for the proceedings.
  3. In case of discrepancy between two reviewers regarding the acceptance of a proposal, a third reviewer will be consulted and the editorial committee will make a final decision.
