Humber’s newest scholarly journal, The Journal of Innovation in Polytechnic Education (JIPE), has put out an open call for papers to be considered for two upcoming special issues. The online, peer-reviewed journal, which features scholarly work that furthers the understanding of teaching and learning practices within polytechnic education, is edited by Heidi Marsh, Humber’s Director of Scholarship of Teaching & Learning and Eileen DeCourcy, Humber’s Associate Vice President for Teaching & Learning. It is published by Humber Press. It launched its first issue in March.
(Read the first issue on the JIPE website.)
JIPE’s special issue on “Innovative Learning Spaces” will feature the latest in learning space design, including non-physical spaces like virtual, simulated and online learning environments. Submissions may be empirical studies, or literature reviews.
To be considered for publication in this special issue, please submit by July 15, 2018.
The special issue on “Innovation in Sustainable Solutions” will highlight the impact of projects of programs focused on sustainable infrastructure and construction, alternative energy, smart cities and advanced manufacturing. Submissions may be best practice recommendations, evidence of curriculum shifts to accommodate new needs, or examples of industry partnering with polytechnics to address their own operational need for talent or innovation.
To be considered for publication in this special issue, please submit by January 15, 2019.
Faculty from across the college sector are encouraged to contribute to the journal, regardless of their experience in publishing peer-reviewed journals. Humber’s in-house editorial team, Humber Press, takes a developmental approach to articles, providing extensive and constructive feedback to authors.
