CALL FOR PAPERS - HELMeTO 2020
Second International Workshop on
Higher Education Learning Methodologies
and Technologies Online -
Blended Modality: On-Line and On-Site Participation
Bari (Italy), September 17-18, 2020
HELMeTO 2020 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working in Higher Distance Education Institutions or studying Online Learning Methodologies to present and share their research in a multidisciplinary context. The workshop is focused on all the relevant topics for online higher education and provides a forum for the discussion of new research directions and applications in these fields, where different disciplines could effectively meet.
The workshop will be held in Bari, at University of Bari "A. Moro", on September 17/18, 2020.
The organizers of HELMeTO consider the health and well-being of the participants a priority. Therefore, the 2020 edition of HELMeTO is going to be blended, combining on-site and on-line participation. Conference delegates can choose one of the two modalities:
- on-site modality (as initially planned): delegates will meet at the conference venue and will deliver oral presentations of papers if allowed by international and Italian regulations at that time. Social and other parallel activities could be modified according to the imposed health restrictions. We strongly encourage taking into account that there may be traveling restrictions when booking flights and accommodation.
- on-line modality: delegates will join the conference through the Internet service, without traveling to Bari. Tools for accessing presentations and networking will be available.
Different types of registration will be available for delegates, depending on the type of participation. This information will be provided by the end of June 2020.
