CFP: Online Learning (Academic Exchange Quarterly)

CFP: Online Learning (Academic Exchange Quarterly)

Feature Editor:
Dr. Ben Varner
Professor of English at
University of Northern Colorado


Web-based instructional delivery has resulted in an explosion of “online learning” initiatives, technological innovations in education, and creative uses of the Internet. This focus is on ways of delivering instruction through asynchronous or synchronous methods either through online courses or by “hybrid” or “blended” courses.

There are shifts in course reconceptualizations, course designs, instructional pedagogy, faculty training, and course learning outcomes. For instance, what are the best methods of teaching students to evaluate what they find on the Internet? How does placing a course online change the needs of students who seek information? How are teachers using smart classrooms, bulletin boards, listservs, blogs, and wikis?

All innovative suggestions for instruction and technology for online learning are welcome. If you have useful experiences to share or have new ideas regarding instruction, technology, or information-gathering on the Web, please consider submitting an article.

Who May Submit:
Submissions are welcome from teachers, trainers, administrators, and graduate students (who must have a letter of support from a professor) who actively use computer-based instruction in some form.

Please identify your submission with keyword: ONLINE

Submission deadline:
any time until the end of August 2006; see details for other deadline options like early, regular, and short.
