Dear participants!

It gives me great pleasure, on behalf of Program and Organizing Committee and in my own name, to invite you to participate at the Global Education, Teaching & Learning Conference 2021 which will be held in Croatia (September 22nd – 25th, 2021). 

This conference is intended for academics and professionals to meet and exchange ideas, experiences and research results in various areas of education, teaching and learning about challenging the underlying assumptions of educational systems. We welcome a diverse set of contributions: from those which are in an idea stage to those that are fully developed manuscripts. We also welcome different formats for publication: from abstracts, which indicate the direction, to full papers. Conference proceedings (with ISSN) will be published by Innovation Institute.

Based on our previous conferences, I am sure that this conference will be a great success providing a wide array of contributions with diverse interests.

GETL 2021 will be held in Zagreb (capital and the largest city of the Republic of Croatia). The last day of the conference is traditionally reserved for a conference trip. If it will be possible with regard to Covid-19, we will visit Plitvice Lakes National Park which are on UNESCO World Heritage list. We will do our best to make your stay at the conference as pleasant as possible so you can focus on your work and experience the wonders of Zagreb.

Hopefully, until the time of the conference, Covid-19 pandemic will come to an end and everybody will be able to travel. However, for those who will not be able to attend the conference in person in Zagreb, we will enable on-line presentation and participation.

We are looking forward to welcoming you for 2021 GETL Conference.

Sincerely,

Filip Vrhovnik
Organizing Committee Chair

Will the “New Normal” Become the “Normal”?

Global Education, Teaching & Learning Conference 2021 focuses on exploring and questioning whether the new ways of education, teaching and learning will become the standard way. The last 12 months have been challenging for all industries, but education has been one of the most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Established ways of education and learning were no longer possible and everything was shifted to an online environment. By finding a vaccine and hoping that the health situation will improve, the question arises as to whether the education industry will return to the old (postulates that were valid before the pandemic) or will continue in a new way. All stakeholders should be included - users, providers, government, competition, environment, companies, etc. We would like to use 2021 GETL Conference as a platform for discussions on how to structure educational systems (at different levels) in order to deliver greatest value for an individual, but also humanity.

The purpose of the conference is to provide a research platform for academic researchers, doctoral students and practitioners on challenging the underlying assumptions of educational systems. This conference provides an opportunity for an interdisciplinary take on this issue from educational, teaching and learning viewpoints. Through its interdisciplinarity this conference aims at providing a platform for constructive dialogue on these important issues.

We welcome diverse contributions: conceptual and empirical; abstracts and full papers; research in early stages and fully completed papers. All submissions will be arranged in the three tracks (Education, Teaching, Learning), and we provide some ideas on what your research can focus (see Conference Tracks). However, list is just indicative but not exhaustive – so we welcome also ideas that are not covered by our suggestions.

The publication of a paper in GETL Conference Proceedings reflects the quality of the work of the authors, reviewers and editors. If any stakeholder involved in paper publication has doubts about what to do and how to proceed, below are presented guidelines to follow.

 

For authors
Authors should conduct their research (from research idea to publication) in line with best practices and codes characteristic for scientific work. Authors are responsible for ensuring that their manuscripts submitted for the conference are ethically prepared and submitted. This means that:

  1. all submitted papers must represent original work of authors (if another authors’ text if used, it should be properly cited)
  2. authors should avoid auto-plagiarism
  3. papers submitted for the conference and inclusion in conference proceedings should not be submitted or published in any other journal / conference proceedings in any language
  4. people listed as authors should be only those which contribution is substantial for the paper
  5. in reporting research results, authors should be ethical
  6. a paper should contain enough details and references to permit others to replicate the research
  7. if an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his / her own published paper, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify conference proceedings editor and to work with the editor to retract or correct the paper
  8. proper acknowledgment of any who financially helped in preparation of any part of a paper (from research to editing) should be written

 

For reviewers
Reviewers assist conference proceedings editor in making decisions about papers’ acceptance / rejection and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper. Therefore, reviewers must follow the below mentioned guidelines:

  1. if reviewer become aware of author’s identity, he / she should immediately report that to conference proceedings editor

  3. reviewers should review only those papers for which they feel competent
  4. reviewers should express their views clearly with supporting arguments
  5. if a reviewer suggests that an author includes citations to the reviewer’s (or his / her coauthors’) work, that must be for scientific reasons and not with the intention of increasing the reviewer’s citation and paper visibility

  1. editor must protect authors’ and reviewers’ identities
  2. editor must ensure that the peer review process is fair, unbiased and timely (editor should select reviewers who have suitable expertise in the relevant field, taking account of the need for appropriate, inclusive and diverse representation, and at the same time avoiding any conflict of interest)
  3. editor should exclude him/her-self from considering submission in which they have conflict of interest
  4. all submitted papers should be evaluated for their scientific content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion etc. of the authors.
  5. editor should remain objective throughout whole process and provide platform that is ethical and equal to anyone
  6. editor must protect the confidentiality of all material submitted to the conference and all communications with reviewers and authors
  7. editor must not be included in decisions about papers which he/she has written him/herself or have been written by family members or colleagues

Doing Business in Post Pandemic World

When Covid-19 appeared, no one expected it to grow into a pandemic which will change business fundamentally. In less than a year, some industries have come to the brink of collapse, while others have experienced growth. Any crisis can be defined as a shift of life and business paradigm in such a way that one or more assumptions are changed. In this way, a specific context for business decisions is made, which is based on a significantly changed logic from the one to which the existing system is accustomed. Global Business Conference 2021 focuses on proposing solutions for doing business in the post-pandemic world by understanding and (re)defining the logic of the economy and society in general and changing a business in a way that creates the greatest value in the new business logic. We invite contributions that can propose new business paradigms for multiple perspectives and multiple contexts – for doing business in ‘new normal’.

Conference welcomes both theoretical and empirical contributions that discuss important issues in their field and how these issues relate to business challenges in global economy. We look toward opening up discussion of new ideas that are likely to shape future business and academic landscapes.

The purpose of the conference is to provide a research platform for academic researchers, doctoral students and practitioners on developing key business insights which help explain and/or prescribe business actions in order to drive value creation. This conference provides an opportunity for an interdisciplinary take on this issue from marketing, finance, accounting, management, economics, tourism and other viewpoints. Through its interdisciplinarity this conference aims at providing a platform for constructive dialogue on these important issues.

We welcome diverse contributions: conceptual and empirical; abstracts and full papers; research in early stages and fully completed papers. All submissions will be arranged in the five tracks (Economics, Finance and Accounting, Management, Marketing, Tourism). List is just indicative but not exhaustive – so we welcome also ideas that are not covered by our suggestions.
