ABOUT THE BOOK WE’RE GOING TO PUBLISH WORLDWIDE

For this international book-writing symposium, we call upon scholars and practitioners of e-learning to submit chapters for the book IMPROVING UNIVERSITY TEACHING AND LEARNING THROUGH E-LEARNING.

The book will be published worldwide by Libri Publishing Ltd., Oxfordshire, UK, in line with previous books of the Learning in Higher Education series. SEE OUR BOOKS ONLINE

This book is multidisciplinary!

We invite contributions from all academic disciplines. We are particularly interested in authors writing chapters that show explicitly the link between e-learning and student learning. We call for this because we believe that students will benefit from educations with an explicit view on how students learn through their activities of study.

The book is open for any view on e-learning as long as it is informed by theory and reflected in practice.

Submit your chapter which documents e-learning in higher education centering student learning. The aspiration is to publish a book which is diverse in nature and which showcases concrete examples of e-learning in higher education from around the world.

Reviewers will refer to the following questions when reviewing chapter proposals:

  • Does the chapter show a clear example of how teaching and learning in higher education are improved through e-learning?

    • It is required that a chapter not only describes the use of e-learning but also documents the design principles and its application as a teaching method to enhance student learning in higher education.

  • Is the chapter grounded in the contemporary theory of e-learning?

    • It is important that a chapter not only describes the use of e-learning but also situates it theoretically and reflects on various theories of e-learning.

  • Does the chapter demonstrate how e-learning enhances student learning?

    • It is expected that a chapter moves beyond speculation, and provides evidence of the enhanced student learning which results from the use of e-learning.

  • Is the submission clear, compelling and concise?

    • It is a must that the chapter is written with readers in mind, using a fresh and modern style, which appeals to a broad audience.

We look forward to receiving your chapter proposal & hopefully work with you on the beautiful GREEK island of AEGINA to finalise the manuscript for publication.

Explanation of fee-structure. LiHE operates with an all-inclusive symposium package, contrary to other conference organisers, who charge you for individual activities. We believe that the LiHE-model is fairer because you know what you get. All is inclusive, so you are not surprised with extra charges during the symposium. With the LiHE-model you know exactly what your symposium budget is *before* you go, so you can apply for funding. Compared to other conferences, we also find that the LiHE-model is less expensive.

ABOUT THE EDITORS

The book is edited by Professor Dr. John Branch, University of Michigan; Professor Dr. Paul Bartholomew, Ulster University; Adjunct Professor Anne Hørsted, University of Southern Denmark; Professor Dr. Claus Nygaard, Institute for Learning in Higher Education.
