The sixth annual Digital Media and Learning conference (DML 2015) is organized around the theme “Equity by Design"

The conference is meant to be an inclusive, international and annual gathering of scholars and practitioners in the field, focused on fostering interdisciplinary and participatory dialogue and linking theory, empirical study, policy, and practice.

This year’s conference calls on us all to promote equity in digital learning practices, and engage in thinking of solutions for addressing educational opportunity gaps in today’s technological world.

DML 2015 seeks to engage the following questions:

  • How do new technologies and networks offer solutions or exacerbate inequity?
  • How are different genres of engagement with technology intersecting with enduring forms of economic, cultural, and social stratification?
  • How do we need to adapt public policy and educational practice to respond to the new challenges of promoting equity, given the ascendance of networked and informal modes of learning?
  • In what ways can equity become part of the logic of design, implementation, and assessment?
  • How can we build more expansive discourses and representations of young people’s full cultural repertoires and digital media’s role in shaping new practices and opportunities?
  • What leading-edge design grammars or structures are needed to imagine new social futures for today’s youth, locally and globally?

The 2015 Digital Media and Learning Conference (DML 2015) will be held at the Sheraton Los Angeles Downtown Hotel (CA, US) on June 11 - 13, 2015.
