IEEE TALE 2018 – Call for VET and L&D Practitioner Participation


Wollongong, NSW, Australia
4 – 7 December 2018

TALE is the IEEE Education Society’s premier conference series in the Asia-Pacific region. It aims to provide a forum for scholars and practitioners to share their knowledge and experience in STEM and technical education, as well as in technology-enabled educational innovation across a variety of academic and professional disciplines. This year’s theme, “Engineering Next-Generation Learning”, adopts a future-facing perspective in addressing this dual focus. To this end, both academic papers and practitioner-focused presentation proposals are solicited that relate to two distinct but interconnected strands:

1. Preparing the Next Generation of Engineers and Technologists
2. Next-Generation Learning Technologies, Approaches and Environments

Attendees of the EdVET 2018 Conference are being offered the opportunity to register to attend TALE 2018 at the discounted IEEE member rate, irrespective of whether they are IEEE members.

Extended Practitioner Submission Deadline:
17 September 2018
