The arena of higher education is nowadays invested by several tensions.
Actors, scales and stakes are being reconfigured and reassembled in the
wake of social and political events which education institutions and
practitioners are called to face on heterogeneous scalar levels. The
academic profession is deeply implicated in this intricate and
ever-changing context, as several complex challenges arise with which it
has to deal with, e.g.:the engagement of universities in teaching
innovation efforts; the emergence of reforms based on New Public
Management logics; the plain-sight as well as concealed effects of
digital technologies; the Europeanisation and globalisation of higher
education arenas; the involvement of universities in ‘third mission’
efforts; etc.

«Scuola Democratica», one of the most relevant Italian journals on
education, is thus issuing a call for papers for a special issue about
The academic profession in the making: Teaching innovation, digital,
accountability and other challenges. The extended call for papers and
all details can be found at the following link: The
deadline for the submission of abstracts is 13 December 2019.
