Cases on Teacher Identity, Diversity, and Cognition in Higher Education


Proposal Submission Deadline: April 15, 2013

A book edited by Paul Breen

To be published by IGI Global:



This book is one which looks at teacher identity from a range of perspectives, incorporating aspects of theory and practice across a range of disciplines. Though discussing a series of cases in fields ranging from English language teaching to sociology, this book aspires to a synthesis of voices across disciplines; voices that are sometimes marginalised. Generally, all those voices will come from the humanities and social sciences with a range of research methods and methodologies employed to get to the heart of the matter.

Who are today‘s teachers? What are their backgrounds? What are their concerns? How do they articulate their feelings about their profession and their professional lives? What challenges do they face in today‘s educational milieu? How do they seek to overcome these challenges and are they seeking to redefine education and teaching for a new generation? The book will take a case study approach to describing, discussing, and researching these cases.  The voices contained within this synthesis include teachers across a broad spectrum of background, research interests, and opinions.

Objective of the Book

The mission of the book is to provide a synthesis of new voices in the world of education, some of whom have great publishing and research potential in the future, and to make a new and exciting contribution to the literature on teacher identity. A further purpose is to challenge perspectives on the role of the teacher and to highlight changes which are occurring in terms of access to teaching & research roles within the context of higher education.

Target Audience

This book can be used in the fields of teacher education, teacher cognition, and as an aid on any course that involves narrative research or social and cultural issues. It will be used by teacher educators and trainee teachers, as well as those who have an interest in social research into teaching, and those who are part of ‘the world’s oldest profession.’

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to the following:

Contributors are welcome to submit chapters on the following topics relating to:

Case studies of teachers in specific disciplines

Teacher cognition

Teacher identity

Teacher education

Narratives of teacher experience

Teachers as individuals or teachers as a group

Studies of teaching and technology

The psychology of teachers

Teachers of differing ethnicity and gender

Teachers who ‘break the mould’

Non-native English-speaking teachers of english

Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before April 15, 2013, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by April 30, 2013 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by August 15, 2013. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.

Engaging Language Learners through Technology Integration: Theory, Applications, and Outcomes.


Proposal Submission Deadline: April 15, 2013

A book edited by Drs. Shuai Li & Peter Swanson (Georgia State University, U.S.A.)


To be published by IGI Global:




The teaching and learning of second/foreign language has been revolutionized by the infusion of Web 2.0 technologies, free and open source software platforms, and thousands of apps emerging daily. The emergence of Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL), combined with new teaching approaches, has transformed language teaching and learning from a teacher-centered or textbook-centered instructional practice to a student-centered approach. The infusion of computer technology into innovative language teaching paradigms can help address the challenges that instructors face in traditional classrooms. For example, motivating and fostering student engagement in meaningful language practice is challenging for language instructors on multiple levels, not the least of which is overcoming perceptions of irrelevance in real-world applications. Computer technology can help address these issues by providing opportunities for learning languages in authentic environments through technologies such as synchronous computer-mediated communication (e.g., online chatting), asynchronous computer mediated communication (e.g., e-mail exchanges, blogging), and multi-user virtual environments. Such technology-informed language instruction can effectively motivate learners to engage in student-centered language tasks with real-world outcomes. Compared with traditional classroom approaches, technology-informed language instruction can better improve linguistic and cultural fluency, which is linked to increased learning output, a decreased sense of the affective obstacles to language learning, and improved quality of communication (Schinke-Llano & Vicars, 1993; Stepp-Greany, 2002).


Clearly, CALL holds much promise for effective language teaching and learning. Yet as a relatively young field of inquiry, there has been limited empirical research highlighting the learning outcomes of technology integration. Although many journals and books provide research describing how to implement technology, few chapters and articles are published showing the effectiveness of using technology for teaching languages. This book seeks to expand the knowledge base of CALL that highlights how technology impacts the teaching and learning of languages from an empirical standpoint and from a global perspective. Having a resource that includes the theoretical and practical uses of technology tools as well as learning outcomes from having integrated technology into the language learning process is important in today‘s research-based, student achievement driven society. Clearly, language learning is a complex system, and the successful outcomes related to the integration of technology should be focused on.




Objective of the Book

The overarching goal of the book is to build an innovative knowledge base about CALL theory and successful practices integrating a variety of technological tools in the context of K-20 language learning. To achieve this goal, this book will present a collection of empirical studies examining theoretical issues as well as specific applications and outcomes regarding the integration of innovative technology into language teaching and learning. This book will consider a wide spectrum of technology applications for all operating systems suitable for educational purposes. Innovative research using free and open source software, proprietary software, as well as a plethora of cutting-edge apps that engage language learners and promote successful language learning will be presented along with empirical findings.


Target Audience

The target audience of this book will be composed of educational researchers, instructional technologists, K-20 language teachers, and people interested in language teaching outside formal educational environments. Faculty members at institutions of higher education as well as curriculum specialists will be able to benefit from the book for making decisions regarding curriculum development, assessment strategies, and selection of language learning technology for language labs. The book will serve as a reference for the advancement of research on and the practice of teaching and learning languages in both theoretical and practical ways. As such, this book can be used as a textbook for second/foreign language technology integration classes. 


Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

         Web 2.0 tools in language teaching, learning, and testing

         Intelligent Tutoring in language teaching, learning, and testing

         Computer-mediated communication in language teaching, learning, and testing

         Corpora and concordancers in language teaching, learning, and testing

         Virtual and distant language learning technologies

         Language courseware design, development, and evaluation

         Cognitive, affective and social factors and outcomes of CALL

         Computer technology in teacher training and development


Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before April 15, 2013, a chapter proposal (1-2 pages) clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by May 17, 2013 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by August 30, 2013. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.

Convergence of Broadband, Broadcast, and Cellular Network Technologies


Proposal Submission Deadline: April 1, 2013

A book edited by Dr. Ramona Trestian and Dr. Gabriel-Miro Muntean

Dublin City University, Ireland


To be published by IGI Global:


In the ever-evolving telecommunication industry, smart mobile computing devices have become increasingly affordable and powerful, leading to significant growth in the number of advanced mobile users and their bandwidth demands. Technological improvements alone would not be able to keep up with this explosion of mobile broadband traffic. Thus, even though LTE-Advanced is seen as a dominant player in offering support for mobile broadband and broadcast technologies, making use of the Digital Dividend spectrum allocation for mobile networks could bring game-changing benefits to all parties involved. Bringing together broadband, broadcast, and cellular technologies for global consumers could contribute to the economical, social, and technological benefits of mobile devices.

The Overall Objectives of the Book

This book aims to present a survey of the broadband, broadcast, and cellular coexistence solutions that are proposed in the literature. The book addresses these coexistence problems, which could appear at different levels, e.g., physical characteristics, open access, technology-neutrality, coverage obligations (under-served or unserved remote areas), efficient use of the spectrum resources (Digital Dividend), minimization of the interference problems, socio-economic characteristics, healthcare, education, energy, etc.

Prospective audience

The prospective audience of this book will be undergraduate students, postgraduate students, and researchers who are interested in the emerging area of broadband, broadcast and cellular technologies. The book could be considered a link between academia and industry. Academia could benefit by having a general view of the existing research issues and ideas on the mentioned topics, and on the other side, the industry could benefit by applying ideas or acknowledge issues in real-world applications.

Recommended topics include, but not limited to:

         Efficient and Productive usage of the spectrum resources

          Solutions and challenges

          Socio-economic characteristics

          Impact on education, healthcare, and technology

         Open-access, technology neutrality, coverage obligations

          Mobility challenges and management

         Broadband, broadcast, and cellular technologies coexistence

          Solutions and challenges

          Interoperability aspects

          Physical characteristics

          Interferences and coexistence issues

          Quality-of service provisioning

Creative Solutions in Academic Libraries

Library Juice Academy is starting a webinar series on “Creative Solutions in Academic Libraries,” and this is a call for presenters.

There is no shortage of discussion about “problems faced by academic libraries” at the big scale, regarding trends in higher education and technology, where the approach to these problems is mainly a question of strategic planning. There is less attention to the small scale problems that academic librarians solve in the process of adapting services and processes to a changing environment or to new plans. These solutions to small scale problems can be in the realm of technological kludges or hacks, organizational adjustments, creative ideas in outreach, procedural changes, questioning and revision of “the way we do things” in a specific sense, recognition of areas where “what didn’t work before” can work now, time management strategies, and others.

We are looking for presenters for a series of monthly webinars where academic librarians will share a creative solution that may be helpful to librarians in other institutions. These hour-long webinars will likely include two 20-minute presentations and a period for discussion, with presentations grouped by theme. Presentations may be by individuals or groups. There will be monetary compensation for presenters based on the number of paying attendees.

If you have an idea for a presentation that would fit this webinar series, contact Rory Litwin at, and we can discuss it.

Thanks, and I look forward to your ideas.
