We will focus on three overlapping conference themes, delivered across the programme.
People – Innovation and rapid development has significantly changed the experience of online and distance education for students and staff. This theme presents an opportunity to explore ways of working with each other; equity and diversity; student and staff well-being; student as partners; student success and outcomes.
Pedagogy – Innovation is informing our approaches to learning, teaching, assessment and curriculum design as well as learner expectations and behaviours. This theme presents an opportunity to critically review developing pedagogical approaches, and presents an opportunity to identify strengths in well-established approaches to learning, teaching and assessment.
Practice – What does the practice of online and distance education look like in 2022 and beyond and what are the drivers of change? How is technology being used in practice to deliver or facilitate changes in pedagogy and support the people involved. How is policy adapting to support practice developments? This theme invites us to engage in a dialogue around the ways in which innovations and developments are changing the ways in which online and distance education is practised.

We will aim to showcase pre-recorded presentations and case studies in the run up to the conference and as part of the conference proceedings.
RIDE 2022 seeks proposals for the conference programme, across the following formats:
- 5 or 10 min lightning talks (live online or in-person) – Lightning talks are short presentations that focus on just a couple of key points and are ideal for sharing aspects of innovation, ideas, approaches, ideas and findings
- 20 minute interactive session (live online or in-person) – Research presentations, evaluation studies, innovation in chaired sessions with a focus on discussion and sharing of ideas.
- Short case study 10 mins (live online or in person) – Got something that has worked well, this is a good way to demonstrate evolving and innovative practice, with discussion and sharing.
- Workshop, 45 mins (in-person only) – workshops will be for groups sizes will be up to approximately 35 participants.
- Up to 5 minute pre-recorded video presentation (asynchronous) – a pre-recorded lightning talk format.
- Up to 15 min pre-recorded case studies (asynchronous) - Got something that has worked well, this is a good way to demonstrate evolving and innovative practice.
Colleagues may wish to submit more than one presentation format and are invited to consider how they might link their input – for example a pre-recorded video could be provided to attendees in advance of the workshop.
