The main interest of this meeting lies in its ability to create "a space for reflection and action" on this subject and to offer an open window on national and international experiences. The conference will allow researchers to share their experiences, exchange their points of view and discuss the relationship between digitalization and the changes generated in the field of education and training.


The Higher School of Education and Training of the Mohammed Premier University-Oujda is organizing an international conference: Digitalization Education, Training and Innovation (DEFI’22) under the theme: "Digitalization and Changes in Education".


Over the past decade, the rapid emergence and the massive introduction of digital technologies in the various areas of our societies have led to major changes in the world of education and training. Digital transformation in education has taken a new turn with the Covid-19 health crisis. It was more than ever necessary to invest in the digitalization of the education sector as well as in ICT training, which gave rise to certain structural trends that had begun to emerge. According to the report of the Special Commission on the Development Model (CSMD, 2021) digitalization represents a real lever for change and development, and it should be given special interest for structuring and high-impact transformations.

With these digital mutations, the teacher is no longer the only “holder” of knowledge and skills. Thanks to increasingly connected objects, access to knowledge, information and training opportunities go far beyond the framework of the institution. The range of strategies and working methods of the teacher widens without replacing it. Perhaps the most crucial issues in the use of digital technologies are those that are changing the way we teach and, more importantly, the way learners develop their skills. Shouldn't we think about and bring out new pedagogical approaches in line with the current and future environment of learners? How can digital technologies be used to innovate in education?

This digital transformation, nevertheless, raises strong questions about the appropriation of technologies by learners, namely taking into account more finely their uses which can sometimes be out of step with their perceptions, accessibility, acceptability, etc. Other issues related to this digital transformation are also raised, namely: ethical issues, digital evaluation, the use of digital tools for scientific research, etc.

Today, in addition to the necessary adaptation to the current context, research work is multiplying to explore meaningful experiences for all education stakeholders and to meet the growing need in terms of digitalization.

In this context, the Higher School of Education and Training of the Mohammed Premier University -Oujda is organizing an international conference: Digitalization Education, Training and Innovation (DEFI’22) under the theme: "Digitalization and Changes in Education". The main interest of this meeting lies in its ability to create "a space for reflection and action" on this subject and to offer an open window on national and international experiences. The conference will allow researchers to share their experiences, exchange their points of view and discuss the relationship between digitalization and the changes generated in the field of education and training.

Submission guidelines

Contributions may be presented in the form of oral communications, workshops, symposia or posters.

Oral communications, grouped posteriori into workshops by the organizing committee, can be presented by one or more people. Twenty minutes are devoted to each presentation. The workshops will be led by a moderator.

The contributions of a symposium are articulated around a common problem and a framework text written by the organizer. Each symposium brings together authors from different institutions.

All proposals are to be written in English, French or Arabic, in two pages. The first page will include the title of the intervention, identification of the author, name of the university, organization, institution or affiliated company, email address, postal address, telephone/fax number, the chosen axis ( select one among the four axes proposed above), type of proposal (individual communication, workshop,). The second, entirely anonymous page will include the title of the intervention, 5 key words, a summary of a maximum of 350 words presenting the subject of the contribution, the methodological framework, the corpus of data analyzed and the results expected or obtained.

The symposium leaders must submit a presentation text of 500 words maximum which will highlight the coherence of the problem and the logic of articulation between the different communications forming a symposium. We thank you for sending your proposals, before October 25, 2022 to the following email: DEFI2022@gmail.com. Please mention in the subject of the email: “DEFI2022 communication proposal”

The selected proposals will eventually be subject to modifications or revisions requested by the scientific committee.

For the symposium, the person responsible for coordination is responsible for collecting the various proposals for the various interventions (with the names of the authors) as well as the framing text and the type of intervention. These documents will be made anonymous by the conference organizer to authorize the expertise. Authors who communicate in the context of a symposium should not submit their communication directly.

Presentation modes

  • hybride
  • The time allocated to each communication is 20 minutes.
  • Short symposium (90 minutes – 3 communications) or long symposium (180 minutes – 5 or 6 communications).
  • The lectures will last 30 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of questions and discussions.

Evaluation criteria

Individual proposals and symposia will be evaluated anonymously by two members of the scientific committee according to the following criteria:

  • Relevance and originality of the intervention or research (coherent with the theme of the colloquium);
  • Problematization (theoretical framework, questions, objectives, key references);
  • Methodology (collection, corpus, instruments, analyses);
  • Contributions (results, observations, perspectives).

Fees and registration

  • Registration fees are €100 for teacher-researchers and €50 for students with proof of university registration.
