Call for Articles: Special Issue Of ETRD On Theoretical Contributions To The Field Of Learning, Design, And Technology

Please note this call for articles to a special issue on the use of theory in the broader field of educational technology.

CALL FOR PAPERS FOR ETRD SPECIAL ISSUE ON THEORY IN LEARNING, DESIGN, AND TECHNOLOGY

 

Link to special issue call for papers: http://bit.ly/ETRDTheoryIssue

Because of the need for theory driving research and practice, the discipline of Learning, Design, and Technology has a rich history of theoretical scholarship. This special issue is designed to celebrate the long-standing tradition in Educational Technology Research and Development of encouraging rich, critical, and provoking theoretical scholarship—theory that, as Whetten (1989) explained, not only identifies the variables involved in a research agenda, but explains, contextualizes, and critically analyzes the relationships between these variables. This special issue seeks to publish papers about why theoretical work is essential to the field of instructional technology; what constitutes effective theory and theoretically-based papers; and how to encourage and review quality theoretical scholarly work. In addition, we seek papers that are examples of new, critical, and significant theoretical work to guide the next decade of research and practice in the field.

Important Dates
●      March 15, 2019 —outlines of proposed papers due to the editors. Submit by email to one of the editors.
●      May 1, 2019 – first drafts of papers due to the Editorial Management system (http://www.edmg.com/etd);
