Call for Papers

Conference theme

PATT 25 provides a unique opportunity, bringing together the research, discussion and debate of previous PATT conferences and previous CRIPT conferences.  As a result we anticipate a rich and diverse gathering of international colleagues whose interests span all phases of education, from early years through to higher education

This opportunity has prompted an overarching theme for the conference of perspectives on learning in Design and Technology Education.  Within this we would welcome papers that present and discuss research that focuses on a range of key areas of importance from primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education. Topics could include aspects of learning, teaching, assessing and related pedagogy; of global issues such as sustainability, ethics, values and culture; of interdisciplinarity such as STEM, links with creative and performing arts, links with social sciences; of the impact of technological developments on learning, teaching and assessing in Design and Technology education; on the potential of a design approach.
