Integrating Curricular and Co-Curricular Endeavors to Enhance Intellectual,
Intercultural, Global, Community, and Personal Student Outcomes

Northeastern University, Boston

 

Call for Chapter proposals

  

In too many ways higher education is still a series of silo-like endeavors
rather than collaborative integrated fabrics. Integrating classroom learning
with out of class experience designed to produce significant outcomes
remains elusive and haphazard. Evidence that significant student learning
and development takes place in multiple venues such as internships, service
learning, clubs and organizations, student employment etc. invites
thoughtful integration of intellectual, personal, and behavioral linkages
between curricular and co-curricular offerings. A more seamless intentional
approach to such integration can overcome some of the sub-optimal structures
of the past. This volume will be a forum to share theory, research, and
practice of the integration of academic programs with co-curricular,
community, international, study abroad, NGOs, service learning, internships,
alumni networks, secondary school programs, clubs and organizations etc. For
example, medical education in the United States traditionally had a two plus
two year structure where two years of science study was followed by two
years of clinical training at hospitals, often without adequate facilitation
of the transfer of learning from classroom to practice. We are interested in
reports on change to more integrated curricula that overcome inherent
problems of the separation of academic learning from that related to other
spheres.

Submit a one-page or so chapter proposal.  Also, include for each of the
coauthors a brief biography including terminal degree, current institutional
affiliation and position, and a listing of any related publications. For
each coauthor include contact information, so we can readily contact you
ideally including: email address, mobile phone, work phone, home phone, and
Skype (if you do not mind us contacting you through these). We realize that
this is a very aggressive schedule.  However, we believe that moving agilely
to a first draft during the spring term will work best for getting our book
