"The historical context of international distance education and its influence on today's developments" Special issue of the Quarterly Review of Distance Education
CALL FOR PAPERS
You are invited to submit an article for an upcoming special issue of the Quarterly Review of Distance Education devoted to the historical context of international distance education and its influence on today's developments.
Up to now, distance education has paid limited attention to its own history and to how this history has influenced its development over the years and is still influencing current events. In this special issue we are not looking for a mere presentation of information, but for information, facts, data and research that make the history (the past) of distance education relevant for present and future developments. This special issue of the Quarterly Review of Distance Education will not look at distance education in one specific context, one particular country, or even one continent, but at the development of distance education worldwide. We thus solicit contributions from "international" distance educators.
It is intended that all contributions will not only be published in the Quarterly Review of Distance Education, but will also form the basis of a monograph to meet the needs of the many educators and students who would benefit from a systematic approach to distance education theory and practice.
A panel of distance educators will review all manuscripts, addressing the following criteria:
- Originality of the contribution
- Soundness of the data
- Level of interest and pertinence/relevance for the readers
- Clarity of expression
- Creativity in approach
Please follow the link to access instructions for authors.
We look forward to welcoming you as one of the contributors to this special issue of the Quarterly Review of Distance Education.
