Proposals Submission Deadline: September 15, 2016
Full Chapters Due: December 15, 2016
Innovative practices related to scholarship of teaching and learning occur inside and outside of classrooms in formal and non-formal educational institutions located in various countries across the world. Teaching strategies and learning technologies that are being used in cultural and national contexts support innovative curriculum and instructional activities. The interplay among innovative teaching-learning strategies and technologies across cultural and national borders has transnational facets that can inform the activities of both scholars and practitioners. The transnational facets of such innovative teaching-learning strategies and technologies have implications to foster creativity, transformative learning, and more efficient and effective learning outcomes, especially for learners with diverse backgrounds. This volume intends to feature such transnational facets based on chapters that include theoretical and practical insights from various regions of the world.
Purpose of the book:
Strategies and technologies of teaching and learning are being used across the world in various unique national and cultural contexts. Some of these strategies and technologies are unique to specific nation-states and cultures. Some of them have been used globally, but with local adaptation. The purpose of this proposed publication is to highlight patterns with transnational applications or facets that are nationally or culturally situated.
Completed chapters should be between 7,000 and 8,000 words in length, and fully referenced following APA style guidelines. A chapter must include sections about:
ü Innovativeness: What makes the teaching or learning strategy or technology innovative?
ü Conceptual or theoretical framework: What extant literature, conceptual or theoretical framework informed the innovative teaching or learning strategy or technology?
ü National context: What are the social, economic, cultural, or even political contexts of the education system within which the innovative teaching or learning strategy or technology occurred or is occurring?
