Call for Chapters in and Edited Volume

Hoodwinking Higher Education: Deviant Behavior and Academia

I am seeking contributors to an edited volume on academic deviance titled, Hoodwinking Higher Education: Deviant Behavior and Academia.

My own current involvement in this project stems from substantial fieldwork on the topic, in particular fraudulent academic conferences that offer various amenities such as vacation/tourist packages; guaranteed acceptance for participation; guaranteed publications in conference proceedings; invitations for future keynote speaking engagements; all at the expense of allocated college/university research budgets.

Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Call for Submissions: Digital Pedagogy Tools, Digital Research Tools, Assignments, and Reviews (ongoing/rolling deadline)

updated: 
Sunday, January 7, 2018 - 4:02pm
Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 1, 2018

The mission of The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy (ISSN 2166-6245) is to promote open scholarly discourse around critical and creative uses of digital technology in teaching, learning, and research. Educational institutions have often embraced instrumentalist conceptions and market-driven implementations of technology that overdetermine its uses in academic environments. Such approaches underestimate the need for critical engagement with the integration of technological tools into pedagogical practice. The JITP counters these trends by recentering questions of pedagogy in our discussions of technology in higher education.
