The 18th annual conference of the International Society for the Design and Development of Education (ISDDE) will be held October 16-19 in Boston, Massachusetts. This conference is an opportunity for educational designers of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology to share their work and learn from each other. This conference attracts designers from pre-K to post-secondary education, both in and out of schools, from different countries from around the world!
The theme of this year’s conference is Designing for Equity and Social Justice: Creating New Futures. Participants will have opportunities to engage in critical discussions around how the design of education, as found in curriculum materials, assessment, professional learning, and policy, can expand opportunities for students and can disrupt systemic injustice that perpetuate educational inequities.
We are building an exciting array of talks and activities. The program will include plenary addresses, contributed sessions (research presentations and workshops), and a poster session. In addition, full-conference participants will be able to take part in a working group and attend a celebratory dinner.
