INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS
TYPES OF CONTRIBUTIONS
What type of contributions do we accept?
Papers can take various forms, but it is always necessary to provide a title and abstract in the recommended range of up to 900 characters, including spaces, and a photo of the author. You can participate with more than one entry, however you need to register as many times as there are entries. This important data will be used by the organizers in the preparation of the web platform. If the paper consists of several authors, each must register separately and state in the abstract that they are a co-author.
Types of Contributions:
1. A traditional conference presentation of a paper in the format of a pre-recorded video. The recommended length of the presentation is max. 20 min. See below for acceptable formats; you can also provide a link to a video uploaded to one of the common repositories (such as YouTube).
2. A visual presentation in the form of visual material with text captions. Organizers should be provided with photos or video accompanied by text; the contribution will take the form of a gallery. See below for acceptable formats. This type of contribution can be used by teachers to share visual material from their own teaching and by artists. They can present their works of art by documenting it (preferably by photographs or videos accompanied by text). In their art, artists can reflect the quarantine period, the topic of social isolation and other phenomena or emotions that are linked to the pandemic. We look forward to visual works that express through artistic means what we have experienced, or that may become a metaphor for the cyberspace (and our existence in it) in which our actions take place and to which we have resorted in response to preventive measures against the spread of the disease.
3. A text in the form of a case study with an example of good practice or an interesting project, which offers inspiration for distance learning and which reflects the ways in which a particular educator or institution responded to the crisis. Case studies may reflect on the author's own project or the project of other authors or institutions. It is desirable to supplement the text with images and it is necessary to comply with the contribution template, see below. Photos must be sent separately in the recommended formats, see below.
4. A text of another type, which, for example, theoretically reflects on the crisis and the importance of art education and art, on selected issues of distance art education and the virtual role of cultural institutions, or points out selected issues that need attention (risks of distance art education, accessibility of technologies and social inequalities, accessibility of digital tools and contents to pupils with special educational needs, etc.). It is necessary to comply with the contribution template, see below.
5. A workshop, which for example shows practical tools suitable for distance learning, demonstrates ways of communicating with students motivating them to making art and presenting it in various ways. It can be any combination of different formats, such as videos and accompanying downloadable materials (e.g. worksheets). It is also possible to use a conference video system (e.g. Zoom) for real-time practical workshops; however, the preparation is fully in the hands of the author of the workshop. If the author chooses a ‘live’ form of a workshop, it is necessary to determine the exact time of the event and the time zone. We recommend recording any live stream so that it is accessible after the workshop is over. The workshop is led by a lecturer who activates the participants and encourages them to participate. It could be also some type of work of art, participatory event, happening or some collaborative work of art. Be creative and feel free to offer us an interesting experience!
Contributions will be published on the conference website in two ways: on the main conference page with an overview of all speakers, and on the text page (in the electronic proceedings).
If in the future the organizers prepare a printed publication, they will address the selected authors individually.
When registering, authors will indicate whether they give consent to their contributions remaining uploaded on the conference website in the future. Only those papers which will be deemed appropriate by the conference scientific committee can be published.
It is necessary to pay attention to the quality of the text as well as of the images, and to adhere to the template. Authors are responsible for ensuring copyrights for photographs or other materials, plagiarism is not permitted.
After registering for the conference, authors will be informed about the method of submitting their contributions. Complete papers with all accompanying materials in the recommended formats must be submitted by September 20, 2020. After this date, their publication on the conference website will not be possible.
The text template can be downloaded here. We would like to remind the authors politely that contributions which are not prepared in accordance with this template can not be accepted for publication. If you choose to contribute a case study, in addition to the instructions provided already, please, follow the instructions below.
Case Study Template:
The aim of case studies is to share examples of good practice, to find ways to teach art education in crisis that may recur in the future. Studies should show applicable approaches and strategies, they can also warn about risks, address the question of whether it is desirable to switch to digital platforms and tools, and recommend tried and tested solutions. Case studies should help find new and adequate ways for the future of art education.
Structure of Case Study:
1. Title and abstract
(e.g. a school, gallery, university, etc., outline of the situation to which the project responds, the specifics of the country and region, a description of the situation that prevailed in the place at the time, etc.)
3. Who was the project, or the given pedagogical approach intended for?
(e.g. schoolchildren, students, gallery audiences, etc.)
4. Objectives and contents of the project or the presented didactic method or approach (What curriculum did the project cover? Did it focus on the initiation of art production, or did it focus on the reception of visual content? Etc.)
5. Description of the solution, methods used, digital tools used, description of the results (preferably accompanied with visual material)
6. Reflections of the project, reactions of its users, feedback from parents of pupils, community, etc.
7. Conclusion of the case study
(Observations on the possibilities of teaching art education at a distance, critical evaluation of the distance form and specific digital tools used, critical observations, an attempt to summarize and evaluate, own observations on the problem of teaching art education at a distance. How did this situation inspire us? What have we discovered? Or on the contrary, what have we lost? Which of the methods will be still applicable in the future? Is it possible to teach art education entirely this way?)
When writing a case study, follow the general guidelines for authors, see the text contribution template.
