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.
