Currents in Teaching and Learning, a peer-reviewed electronic journal that fosters exchanges among reflective teacher-scholars across the disciplines, welcomes submissions for its Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 issues (Volume 10, Numbers 1 and 2).  We consider all submissions that address new approaches to theories and practices of teaching and learning.

Each year we release two issues of Currents, an open-ended Fall issue and a themed issue in the Spring.  We welcome all teaching and learning-related submissions for the Fall Issues.

The theme for the Spring 2019 issue is “Globalizing learning.” With the intensifying clash between nationalism and globalization, the issue of how to incorporate consciousness of global issues and trends into college education has become ever more critical.  For this issue, we invite submissions that address this issue from theoretical and/or practical perspectives. Some questions that might be addressed include (but are not limited to): 

·       What constitutes “global learning”, and what implications might this have for the nature, substance, content, and methods of tertiary education? 

·       What kinds of approaches can be used to integrate global knowledge and skills into teaching and learning across the disciplines? 

·       In what ways can global and local forms of knowledge construction be related in classroom and extra-curricular modes of teaching and learning?  

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 Reviews: send inquiries attn: Kisha Tracy, Book Review Editor. 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  All submissions must be original, previously unpublished work and, if based in a particular academic discipline, must explicitly consider their relevance and applicability to other disciplines and classroom settings.

 

Submissions Deadlines:

Fall 2018 issue: August 15, 2018

Spring 2019 issue: December 15, 2018

 

Submissions received after these dates will be considered on a rolling basis and for the following issue.
