        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.
