InSITE 2020: Informing Science + IT Education Conferences: Online

Jul 7 - 8 2020, Online 

Conference Tracks

_No specific track (many will select this)

Most papers will fall into this "track".  Unless you are a doctoral student (or a new researchers who does not need a paper reviewed by double blind review),  you should select this "track".

Teaching Diverse Populations of Students

Students from various populations may have different needs, strengths, weaknesses, and prior knowledge.  For this reason, teaching diverse populations has a special set of skills.  This track explores these skills and enables us to learn from each other, both of our successes and of strategies that did not work as expected.

"Fake News": Bias, Misinformation, Disinformation, Propaganda, and fictious reporting of news

Today, the term "fake news" is popular.  But the issue has been with us from the start.  This track explores what is bias, misinformation, disinformation, and propaganda and how it impacts us all as consumers and as citizens. See full CfP at

Transdisciplinarity and Knowledge Transfer Across Sectors

The discourse on transdisciplinarity relies heavily on the insights of theory, practice, learning, application, and policy-making that tie theories about transdisciplinarity to the implementation, application, and dissemination of knowledge to inform real-world problems. See the Call for Papers at

Case Method of Teaching

The case method of teaching engages students.  It teaches thinking, not just remember facts for the next test. Student learn by solving problems.

Mentoring and Teaching Doctoral Students

The mission of our journal "International Journal of Doctoral Studies" is advancing the teaching of doctoral students.  This track's focus is the exploration of common (and uncommon) problems and their innovative solutions.

Teach IT: Teaching and Learning of IT

Cyber Security

Our infrastructure and security are under atack by criminals and by foreign governments.  This track explores the problem and possible solutions.

Digital Excellence: Impact, Inclusion, and Imagination

The Digital Excellence track has three subthemes:

Digital Impact


A priority on activities that have significant and tangible reach in the community.  These may include facilitating wide, remote or free access to information and education via digital platforms, providing training and development opportunities for Vietnamese educators or providing sustainable and affordable support to community development initiatives.

Digital Inclusion


An emphasis on the development and use of platforms that do not exclude groups or individuals from accessing them for socioeconomic reasons.  The provision of content in formats and modes that are accessible for individuals with a broad range of learning differences or disabilities.

Digital Imagination


An orientation toward being exploratory, creative and experimental. Trialling of new platforms and modes of digital engagement in partnership with industry and community. Promoting and supporting research, publication, and exhibition in digital excellence.Fostering entrepreneurial and experimental designs and approaches to the use of digital spaces.


Informing Science Research and Application

Student Research: Masters & Doctoral Program Research in Progress

We encourage those in doctoral programs and new researchers to submit to this track.  Submissions will be accepted later in the academic year and the reviewing will be conducted by a special team.  Accepted papers will be presented in sessions who focus are to provide mentoring feedback on presentations in a supportive environment.

Digitally Enhanced Learning and Teaching

Technology-enhanced learning (TEL) is a newly defined field of pedagogy that encompasses the application of technology to teaching and learning for increased engagement and learning outcomes that benefit both student and teacher. It is beginning to transform the way universities operate and how teachers approach the work that they do. It provides great scope for amazing and exciting endeavors in learning styles.

Digitally Augmented Research and Methods

This stream takes a look at novel approaches to understanding our world through research. Authors present manuscripts on new approaches to research which use technology as their central engine of analysis and exploration. Specifically highlighting how technology can be used to nuance and augment our understanding and interpretation of phenomena.
