PebbleBash 2020

With the theme of Charting new courses for learning and teaching, PebbleBash 2020 will once again have a strong focus on pedagogy, especially on learning and assessment design. Our mission here at PebblePad is to help students extract all they can from each step of their individual learning journeys. And so we are looking for submissions from the trailblazers, the innovators, and the forgers of new learning paths off the beaten trail, which tell of the journey to support, guide and develop students from induction to graduation, and beyond.

For PebbleBash 2020 we are charting a new course for our submission process. Instead of the traditional, quite prescriptive process of inviting proposals of particular formats, we would like to invite you to tell us what you would like to present, why and how. This new submission process will involve the following phases:

**CLOSED** PHASE ONE: Expressions of Interest  (Closes 27th September) 

  1. What you would like to present about                        
  2. How it is charting a new course for learning and teaching                      
  3. The presentation format that would best suit your story

PHASE TWO: Designing the Program (30th September - 25th October)

Based on the submissions received we will develop a two-day program that best combines the proposed topics and presentation formats. Where necessary we will liaise with submission authors to negotiate formats to design the best possible program.    

PHASE THREE: Developing the Detail (28th October - 31st December)

Once the program has been finalised, we will request further information from submission authors based on the allocated presentation format. This will include full case studies or papers for those who are keen to have their work published in the conference proceedings.                    


Conference Theme - 2020 Vision for Learning Cultures


Although we have not stipulated subthemes the Scientific Committee will group presentations            on similar topics into sessions and this will be reflected in the final program.
