Call for Papers: Special Issue in Current Issues in Emerging eLearning on Leveraging Adaptive Courseware

Deadline: February 28, 2020

In collaboration with the Personalized Learning Consortium at the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, Current Issues in Emerging eLearning announces a call for papers for a special issue on leveraging adaptive courseware and adaptive learning. The latest iterations of adaptive tools use computer algorithms to collect and analyze data about student learning to personalize students’ interactions with faculty or with the adaptive courseware or both. Initial research results are promising (House, Means, Peters Hinton, Boyce, Wetzel, & Wang, 2018) but there is much to learn about implementing adaptive learning.

Current Issues in Emerging eLearning (CIEE) is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal of research and critical thought on eLearning practice and emerging pedagogical methods. The journal is published by the Center for Innovation and Excellence in eLearning, and sponsored by the College of Advancing and Professional Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Human architecture and the sociology of self-knowledge relate to one another as practice to research—as whole to part. Human architecture is about tearing down walls of human alienation, and building integrative human realities in favor of a just global society. The sociology of self-knowledge explores how everyday personal self-identities and world-historical social structures constitute one another. And the present journal seeks to chronicle the creatively evolving spiral of their dialectical journey toward untapped human potentialities.

New England Journal of Public Policy

The mission of the New England Journal of Public Policy goes hand-in-hand with the mission of UMass Boston: To serve the people, and address the issues of a great urban society through outstanding teaching, research and service. While we address policy issues of all kinds, we tend to focus on issues of an urban society. While we address policy issues internationally and nationally, we pay particular attention to disciplines which can address issues at the state and local level. While we prepare our students for academia, business and the nonprofit world, we have special expertise for practitioners of public policy. And while we approach the discipline of public and global policy with academic rigor and objectivity, we tend to see the issues through the prism of understanding that social and economic inequities are inherent in our system; part of our mission is to develop the tools to evaluate and address those inequities.
