THE CENTRE FOR WOMEN'S STUDIES IN EDUCATION
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Women, the Environment, and Art:
The Centre for Women’s in Education (CWSE) is creating a working group around the theme of women, the environment, and art with the Jackman Humanities Institute. This is an invitation to faculty and students at the University of Toronto and other local institutions who are interested in being involved in this working group proposal. We expect to meet 8 times during the upcoming 2011-12 season to discuss feminism and the environment in different academic disciplines, resulting in a spring symposium. If you’re interested in becoming involved in this early planning stage, please contact Susan Aaron at firstname.lastname@example.org .

JOURNAL OF INTERACTIVE TECHNOLOGY AND PEDAGOGY
The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy seeks scholarly work that explores the intersection of technology with teaching, learning, and research. Because we publish in a digital format, we are interested in contributions that take advantage of the affordances of digital platforms in creative ways.
Submissions that focus on pedagogy should balance theoretical frameworks with practical considerations of how new technologies might be employed in the classroom. Research-based articles should include discussions of approach, method, and analysis.
In addition to scholarly articles, we will consider:
• Manifestos and jeremiads: ideological statements that strongly articulate new visions of academic life and work.
• Interviews, dialogues or conversations: interviews with teachers or researchers using new tools or techniques in innovative ways; dialogues between scholars on new directions in pedagogy and research; or roundtable discussions about pedagogy, research, or academic development.
• Reviews of relevant materials in the field: descriptions and critiques of recent offerings in the field, such as new books, hardware, software, CMSes, etc.
• Assignments or exercises, classroom-based or otherwise, accompanied by critical reflection.
• Creative works: videos, animations, poems, games, photographs, presentations, etc.
On average, full-length articles range between 3,500 and 8,000 words, but more important than length is the work’s ability to engage an audience in critically reflecting on the uses of technology in academic contexts.
All submissions must be previously unpublished. We regret that we cannot consider simultaneously submitted work. For our complete guidelines, please go to http://ojs.gc.cuny.edu/index.php/itcp/about/submissions.
