Integrative learning pedagogy fosters connections over time and across contexts: curricular and co-curricular, community-based, and personal and professional. It enables students to synthesize and transfer their learning from one setting to others, thus encouraging intentional decision-making in all aspects of life and enabling students build habits of mind that prepare them for "real world" engagement. As we know, eportfolio processes are, most often, deeply rooted in this pedagogy.

I am soliciting abstracts by scholars from all disciplines, including scholar-fans and fan-scholars, to be considered for inclusion in an edited collection on Bruce Springsteen, which will eventually be submitted to Routledge's Studies in Popular Music series.

In the middle of Bruce Springsteen's 2012 Wrecking Ball tour promotional interview with the Paris media, one reporter observed, "so many people these past couple years look to you for your interpretation of events… . Look at us: when we were waiting for you earlier, so many people care about what you think, and what you feel about what is happening in the world."
