Call for Book Chapters: Teaching Learning for Effective Instruction
As co-editors, we are seeking chapter authors for a book we are publishing with IAP: Information Age Publishing titled Teaching Learning for Effective Instruction. The volume is part of the series, Theory to Practice: Educational Psychology for Teachers and Teaching, and it is scheduled to be released in early spring 2021.
Education researchers and practitioners are invited to submit chapter proposals between 500-750 words by September 15, 2019. Chapters in this volume may include
- a review of the empirical research that supports the teaching of learning and cognition as it applies to P-12 settings;
- a description of instructional practices used in college courses that have been effective in teaching about and modeling principles of learning and cognition; or
- a systematic discussion of issues surrounding the teaching of learning and cognition theories, research, and classroom applications, with clear connections between the empirical literature and the instructional practices.
In the Teaching Learning for Effective Instruction volume, we are seeking chapters that fall within the following two themes:
Theme 1 – Essential learning principles, concepts, theories and their importance to teachers and student learning. (Authors may choose to focus on a particular learning theory or concepts across multiple theories.)
Theme 2 – Effective practices for teaching learning principles, concepts, and theories to prospective teachers.
In the spirit of collaboration and mentorship, we encourage authors to include their graduate students on the work. Likewise, graduate students are strongly encouraged to seek mentorship and collaborate with a faculty member.
Proposals will be reviewed and evaluated based on usefulness to college instructors of educational psychology, evidence of theoretical/empirical support, broad accessibility and applicability of topics, quality of writing, and overall quality of ideas.
Note the estimated timeline:
- Sept. 15 – Proposals submitted to Christina Regier at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Nov. 30 – Decisions made
- Mar. 30 – First drafts due
- June 15 – Feedback from Editors
- Sept. 30 – Final drafts due
