General Call for Special-Issue Proposals — ETR&D
General Call for Special-Issue Proposals — ETR&D
Educational Technology Research & Development (ETR&D) is soliciting Special-Issue proposals.
This call is open, and all submissions will be reviewed quarterly. The Research, Development, and Cultural and Regional Perspectives Editors will manage the proposal review process.
We invite your proposal which should contain: (a) Guest Editor(s)’ name(s), 2-page CV(s), and contact information; (b) Special-Issue title; (c) Special-Issue focus, scope, and rationale; (d) likely authors (they need not be confirmed in a proposal) and/or a process for recruiting authors who can deliver good papers; (e) a sample publication or a potential contribution if available; and (f) likely reviewers and/or a process for recruiting reviewers who can deliver good reviews.
A Special Issue should consist of 8 to 12 papers (between 5000 and 7000 words including references). The Guest Editor(s) should contribute an introductory piece to the Special-Issue.
Authors and Guest Editors need not be members of AECT (Association for Educational Communications & Technology; see https://www.aect.org), which sponsors ETR&D, or have previously published in ETR&D. With oversight from an Editor, Guest Editors manage the review process, which takes place according to standard peer-review practice within the editorial management system (www.edmgr.com/etrd). This includes selecting reviewers from the standard pool of reviewers and possibly adding new reviewers (who need to be established scholars with strong publication records), submitting feedback to authors, and making a final recommendation of acceptable papers for the Special-Issue to the ETR&D Editor. All Special-Issues are subject to the standard double-blind review process, and initial submissions should not contain any author-identifying information (includes using only “author” and year of publication for any citations and references involving any of the authors). ETR&D follows APA-6 guidelines.
The General Special-Issue Proposal review process is as follows:
- The General Special-Issue proposals are submitted to the ETR&D Editors online at the address: https://unt.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d4gYA9D7JN8cS4B
- ETR&D Editors conduct an initial review
- Editorial Board assesses and votes on the special-issue proposals
- ETR&D Editors notify results of review
- Timeline set for selected Special Issues
- Guest Editor(s) begins Special-Issue tasks including writing the introductory piece for the Special Issue
The General Special-Issue papers can and should span the full range of research, development, and cultural/regional issues addressed in the journal. It is desirable to have papers that represent multiple perspectives from a variety of research groups. Each paper should not have been submitted elsewhere or previously published, and must represent an original contribution. Please submit your proposal whenever it is ready at the ETR&D General Call for Special-Issue Proposals (https://unt.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d4gYA9D7JN8cS4B)
The Editors, ETR&D
Co-editors Isis Nusair and Barbara Shaw are soliciting abstracts for
inclusion in an anthology that focuses on feminist collaborations and the
radical interconnectedness between pedagogy, theory and practice. We seek
cutting edge work that scholars-teachers-activists are engaging with that
goes beyond valuing collaboration abstractly to engaging it and linking
theory to practice in building feminist/women’s/gender/ LGBTQ+ communities.
This project emerges out of three women’s, gender & sexuality curriculum
institutes funded through the Great Lakes College Association (GLCA) and in
which contributors drew on and returned to the work of Richa Nagar,
AnaLouise Keating, Chandra Mohanty, Jacquie Alexander, Ann Russo, and
others to think through feminist-queer collaborations and pedagogies. Our
call for abstracts invites scholars-educators-activists broadly to focus on
the connection between theory and practice in the process of teaching and
learning, and how to develop strategies for doing collaborative work in an
expansive field of study within and across institutional boundaries. The
aim of the anthology is to fill a vacuum in pedagogy especially on how to
teach intersectionality and transnationalism. It will focus on theorizing
pedagogical approaches and providing resources (media and visuals, syllabi
and assignments) for teaching introductory, theory & method, capstone and
special topics courses in an expanding field. This will help in faculty
development and building local, regional, and transnational connections
that imagine its purpose beyond institutionalization and actively
contributes to socio-political change.
Please send 250-300 word abstracts to Barbara Shaw ( email@example.com )
and Isis Nusair ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) by December 20, 2018. Further
inquiries are welcome. Publishers have expressed interest in the volume and
we will be crafting the book proposal based on selected abstracts.

The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy
Luke Waltzer, The Graduate Center, CUNY
Lisa Brundage, Macaulay Honors College, CUNY
Teresa Ober, The Graduate Center, CUNY
The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy (JITP) seeks scholarly work that explores the intersection of technology with teaching, learning, and research. We are interested in contributions that take advantage of the affordances of digital platforms in creative ways. We invite both textual and multimedia submissions employing interdisciplinary and creative approaches in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Besides scholarly papers, the submissions can consist of audio or visual presentations and interviews, dialogues, or conversations; creative/artistic works; manifestos; or other scholarly materials, including work that addresses the labor and care considerations of academic technology projects.
All work appearing in the Issues section of JITP is reviewed by the issue editors and independently by two scholars in the field, who provide formative feedback to the author(s) during the review process. We practice signed, as opposed to blind, peer review. We intend that the journal itself—both in our process and in our digital product—serve as an opportunity to reveal, reflect on, and revise academic publication and classroom practices. Additionally, all submissions will be considered for our “Behind the Seams” feature, in which we publish dynamic representations of the revision and editorial processes, including reflections from the authorial and editorial participants.
Research-based submissions should include discussions of approach, method, and analysis. When possible, research data should be made publicly available and accessible via the Web and/or other digital mechanisms, a process that JITP can and will support as necessary. Successes and interesting failures are equally welcome. Submissions that focus on pedagogy should balance theoretical frameworks with practical considerations of how new technologies play out in both formal and informal educational settings. Discipline-specific submissions should be written for non-specialists.
As a courtesy to our reviewers, we will not consider simultaneous submissions, but we will do our best to reply to you within three months of the submission deadline. The expected length for finished manuscripts is under 5,000 words. All work should be original and previously unpublished. Essays or presentations posted on a personal blog may be accepted, provided they are substantially revised; please contact us with any questions at email@example.com.
Submission deadline for full manuscripts is November 15, 2018. Please view our submission guidelines for information about submitting to the Journal.

Technology has significant impact on education and communication. On the one hand, the whole learning process can be digitized, captured and analyzed that the data informs academic and practitioners for a continuous improvement in curriculum development, teaching philosophy, pedagogy, learner characteristics, student engagement, assessment and feedback. On the other hand, to a broader perspective, technology changes the way we communicate, in form of interpersonal communication, small group communication, mass media and journalism, new media, and social media. HKAECT International Conference 2019 provides a forum for exchanges of theory and practices on technology in education and communication. This platform provides a linkage between local and international academics and practitioners, and among institutions, society and the world. HKAECT International Conference 2019 aims to enhance the contribution of applied research and scholarship; support the development and application of new conceptual frameworks; improve the quality of contemporary practices; and encourage the continuous revisit of theories.
HKAECT International Conference 2019 cordially invites submissions for the below topics, but will not be restricted to:
⚫ Curriculum development, pedagogy and Instructional designs
