LINC 2019

June 18-20 on the MIT Campus

Pre-conference workshops held June 17


Join us at MIT for the LINC Conference, which brings an international group of researchers and practitioners together to discuss how new insights from learning science, emerging pedagogical approaches, and digital learning approaches can provide quality education at scale, particularly in developing nations and emerging markets. LINC 2019 will take place from Tuesday, June 18 through Thursday, June 20, 2019. On Monday, June 17, pre-conference workshops will be held. Join our discussion and help shape important research and outreach policies as we navigate the expanding dimensions of learning in an era of rapid technological and social change.



Who attends?

LINC invites scholars, practitioners, students, corporate executives, government officials, foundation professionals, EdTech companies, and startups to gather and share research on and insight into digital learning engineering, learning sciences, and pedagogical approaches. LINC attendees are encouraged to network, seek collaborations, and present their own research and experiences during the conference. 

What is LINC?

LINC conferences provide a framework for a meaningful discussion about educational access, practice, and application, allowing speakers and presenters to share their views and findings on the key technological, social, and cultural challenges we face. LINC participants have been sharing research in education, including technology-enabled educational innovations, at LINC conferences since 2002. LINC 2016 had more than 250 participants from over 30 countries; its theme was Digital Inclusion: Transforming Education through Technology.

Present your work at LINC

We invite you to present your work at LINC! The LINC Program Committee will announce a theme in the coming weeks. The LINC 2019 Call for Papers will open in mid-November.

J-WEL members: please note that the LINC Program Committee also welcomes paper submissions related to educational changes that emerge from collaborations with J-WEL.

The eighth LINC Conference was originally scheduled to take place in June 2018 but, due to programmatic and scheduling reasons, the original date was changed.
