In 2022 the ISDDE annual conference returns to the UK and visits, for the first time, the home of the Shell Centre, at The University of Nottingham.

The conference theme will be Learning 2 Design: Design 4 Learning, and it is hoped to grow our ISDDE community by reaching out to communities involved in educational design who don’t always recognise or acknowledge this aspect of their work.

We plan to support our growing community of educational designers in STEM involved with all aspects of design including teaching and learning resources, professional development, assessment, learning technologies, curriculum specification, policy and more. Whatever the focus of your work, join us in Nottingham to connect with designers at all stages of their careers.

Come and share your research, designs, experiences, hopes and fears in the world of educational design for STEM.

There will be opportunities to present your work in two formal presentation formats: presentations and posters as well as more informally both in discussion working groups as well as during networking and social spaces.

We look forward to welcoming you to our first in-person conference since Pittsburgh 2019

Keynote speakers and programme

  • Professor Anne Watson, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics Education, University of Oxford
  • Joe Krajcik, Michigan State University and winner of the 2020 ISDDE prize
  • Charles Lovitt, designer of mathematics materials
