Publishing Opportunities 

  1. The Deadline has been extended to January 15, 2017 for the Call for Proposals for the 5th Edition Handbook of Research in Educational Communications and Technology

Association for Educational Communications and Technology and Springer Publishing
[download printable PDF version]

The editors of the 5th edition of the Handbook of Research in Educational Communications and Technology are pleased to issue this call for chapter proposals due January 15,, 2017.

The Handbook of Research on Educational and Communications Technology is now a well-established research compilation with updates coming about every five years and a stable cadre of scholars interested both in contributing as well as using the Handbook to maintain their knowledge and skills with regard to educational communications and technology. In fact, in the 20 years of the Handbook since 1996, it has consistently provided a comprehensive overview of the field of educational communications and technology. The Handbook editors want to ensure that the 5th edition continues playing this critical role in framing the field’s scholarship as well as tie that important work back into the broader agenda of educational research generally.

However, given the increasingly complex role that technology now plays in education and the growing need for clarity around what technology can and cannot do to improve learner success, it is critical that the research we do addresses real-world educational needs and is disseminated in a way that can meaningfully inform design practice. It is, therefore, becoming increasingly clear that the field’s major outlets for disseminating our scholarship should be organized around the problems we are trying to address (flagging learner engagement, poor teaching, rising costs of education, lack of accessibility) rather than the things we are using to solve those problems (learning analytics, online learning, gamification, 3D printing, and the like).

While the structure of the Handbook’s previous editions have been moving in this direction as the field has evolved, the 5th edition will make a more intentional   organizational shift with sections and chapters that focus on educational needs and cluster the field’s scholarship around the role educational technologies play in the solution of those problems, rather than vice versa. We hope this shift will more clearly tie the scholarship of our field to the broader framework of educational research by offering more sustained grounds for presenting diverse conceptualizations and inquiry models.
