The Grammar Gang cordially invites contributions for the Journal of Learning Design, 2012.

The Grammar Gang is a cross-institutional community of educators and bloggers spanning four institutions, three countries and two hemispheres.

We have been invited to compile a special issue of the Journal of Learning Design, around the theme of ‘The Classroom without walls’.

Our intent is to compile an issue which examines innovation in higher education, as boundaries between institutions blur and policy makers are constantly challenged to keep up with the amorphous technological landscape.

This special issue of JLD invites contributions which look at:

•cross institutional collaboration

•the pedagogical benefits of cross institutional collaboration

•the use of social software to facilitate collaboration

•implications for the academy

•administrative challenges

•new ways of working cross culturally

The Grammar Gang began as a cross-institutional collaboration between Purdue University and the University of South Australia in 2008. There are now more than 100,000 visitors to the blog each year.

The team comprises:

•Professor Linda Bergmann (The Writing Lab, Purdue University US)

•Ms Susanna Carter (Academic Consultant, Adelaide)

•Ms Andrea Duff (Division of Information Technology, Engineering and the Environment, University of South Australia)

•Associate Professor Lisa Emerson (School of English and Media
Studies, Massey University)

•Dr Julia Miller (School of Education, University of Adelaide)
Guidelines for papers can be found here:
