Call: Exemplar projects for 2020 EDUCAUSE Horizon Report

Call for exemplar projects for the 2020 EDUCAUSE Horizon Report

[From the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), a “collaborative community committed to advancing learning through IT innovation,” via the ELICOURSES e-list. –ML]

Submission deadline:  December 4, 2019

As you know, EDUCAUSE has been working closely with the expert panel to prepare the 2020 Horizon Report. We have recently concluded the voting for the six most important emerging technologies and practices for teaching and learning in higher ed.

For 2020, we will continue the long-standing tradition of reaching out to the community for projects that illustrate these technologies and practices in action. If your institution is working with any of the six (listed below), we encourage you to submit your project or initiative via the below-linked form. You are welcome to submit more than one project.

This work can be in almost any form: production or pilot programs, research projects, faculty undertakings, emerging technology trials, or evaluation/assessment projects. The intent is to give readers a more concrete sense of how these technologies and practices are playing out in higher education. We include three such exemplary projects for each of the six technologies and practices highlighted in the EDUCAUSE Horizon Report. We will also be inviting a subset of the authors of the submissions to write up their work in the post for the EDUCAUSE T&L blog Transforming Higher Ed.

The six emerging technologies and practices selected by the expert panel for 2020 are:

  • AI/Machine Learning Educational Applications
  • Open Educational Resources
  • Adaptive Learning Technologies
  • Analytics for Student Success
  • XR (AR/VR/MR/Haptic)
  • Elevation of instructional design, learning engineering, and UX design in pedagogy

The URL for the submission form is:

The deadline for submission is December 4, 2019. These exemplar projects are the heart of the Horizon Report. Many thanks in advance for contributing to the 2020 edition!

Please feel free to circulate this announcement to any colleagues who might be doing work in this area.
