ICED 2020, “The Future-Ready Graduate”: Call for contributions from students

Please pass this message to colleagues and students who you think may be interested.

We cordially invite students to contribute to ICED 2020 in Zurich by submitting a short video statement on the subject of “the future-ready graduate” to be presented at the conference.

How to contribute video statements:
We will kick off the conference with short video statements from students around the world with something to say on the theme of “the future-ready graduate”. Any motivated student with good spoken English or the willingness to provide an English translation (we will convert it to subtitles) may contribute a video statement. We welcome contributing students to attend the conference, but this is not a requirement.

Procedure and format:
• Students ask themselves the question: “For me, who is the future-ready graduate at my university/in my country/in today’s world?” Students may want to take some time on this and discuss with their peers.

• Students make an individual selfie video on their phones, in English or (if not in English)accompanied by an English translation. The video must be no longer than 20 seconds. If the statement is in a language other than English that language must be identified. First, students
should introduce themselves with name, university and country. Second, they should give their answer to the question. There are no rules, but they might start by saying “For me / At my university / In my country, the future-ready graduate is …”

• Procedure: Students simply upload this video to https://tinyurl.com/ICEDstudentvoices and then send an email to katherine.hahn@let.ethz.ch informing us that they have submitted. If the video is not in English this email should also identify the language of the statement and include a translation. Privacy issues: By sending the video statement students agree to have it considered for, and perhaps presented at, the conference. Deadline for submissions: 29 February 2020. We will inform students of acceptance/rejection of their video statements by 31 March 2020.

• We will select several videos and present them on Day 1 of the ICED 2020 conference (16 June 2020) – even before the first keynote speaker. Any student may submit a video statement. Good image and in particular audio quality will be factors in the choice we make, but our main aim is to have a range of student voices which is as international and diverse as possible.

• The contributor of every video selected will be named in the conference programme, and will receive an online voucher of individual choice worth CHF50.

We invite students from a balanced range of countries/regions, disciplines and academic levels (Bachelor’s / Master’s / PhD) to participate in ICED 2020. We welcome diversity of gender, sexual orientation and religion.

We also invite any interested students to attend ICED 2020 at the special student rate: see https://iced2020.ch/

If you would like a pdf flyer of this call to distribute to your students, please email Allan Goody (agoody56@gmail.com).
