The international conference, which will bring together up to 200 participants from different countries, includes plenary meetings held by internationally renowned experts, round tables on topics of interest, and workshops.
The central theme of the Conference, the textbook with its innumerable implications, will be analysed from different perspectives, leaving space for a series of discussions, which will focus on the following issues: analysis of the text adoption systems present in the various participating countries, historical studies that analyse the textbook in its diachronic perspective, research that analyses good practices in the use of books and digital resources, and surveys on the quality of textbooks with particular reference to the digital format.
During the Conference, topics of alternative use practices will also be addressed with reference to innovative teaching methodologies, disciplinary insights, analysis of cross-cutting issues including inclusion and gender issues; and finally, the aspects linked to sociological and economic investigations regarding the production and dissemination of textbooks and digital resources in the various countries.
In 2018 IARTEM entered into an agreement with INDIRE, in particular with the Avanguardie Educative Movement, with the aim of carrying out projects concerning the study of textbooks and digital educational content.
