Call for submissions for Currents in Teaching and Learning

Currents in Teaching and Learning, a peer-reviewed electronic journal that fosters exchanges among reflective teacher-scholars across the disciplines, welcomes submissions for its Spring 2015 issue.  We consider all submissions that address new approaches to theories and practices of teaching and learning. We particularly welcome submissions that address the theme for this issue of “Liberal arts education in the 21st century.”  Some possible issues pertaining to this theme include, but are not restricted to:  

  • What does a liberal arts education mean in the 21st century?
  • How does a liberal arts education prepare students for the challenges and responsibilities of intellectual, moral, civic and professional engagement in a complex and changing world?
  • How can we theorize and/or put into practice pedagogical concepts, approaches and innovations that can contribute to a robust and dynamic liberal arts education inside and/or outside the classroom?

Submissions may take the form of:

  • Teaching and Program Reports: short reports from different disciplines on classroom practices (2850–5700 words);
  • Essays: longer research, theoretical, or conceptual articles and explorations of issues and challenges facing teachers today (5700 – 7125 words);
  • Book and Website Reviews: send inquiries attn: Book Review Editors. No unsolicited reviews, please.

We welcome both individual and group submissions.  All submissions must be original, previously unpublished work and, if based in a particular academic discipline, must explicitly consider their relevance and applicability to other disciplines and classroom settings.
