Call for Chapter Proposals for Handbook of Research on STEM Education (1st edition)!
Edited by: Carla Johnson, Margaret Mohr-Schroeder, Tamara Moore, Lynn Bryan, and Lyn English
Globally, there has been a shift in education to emphasize STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education as a means to better prepare K-12 students for for global citizenship as well as college success and/or entering the workforce with the knowledge and skills to be successful. Research on STEM integration (involving more than one of the disciplines) is expanding and the Handbook of Research on STEM Education aims to synthesize, through an international lens, time-honored and contemporary research on the integration of one or more of the STEM disciplines within a curricular, instructional, structural, or other educational programming format, culminating in a bold vision for the future of STEM education. We would like to have broad-span and narrow-span foci to reflect the many exciting research endeavors out there. We are seeking to include research on issues related to, for example, STEM focused schools, integrated STEM curriculum and instruction, STEM out-of-school learning experiences (see suggestions attached).
The editors have partnered with Routledge/Taylor & Francis to publish the Handbook of Research on STEM Education – slated for publication in 2019. We are currently seeking chapter proposals to be considered for inclusion in the handbook. We are interested in chapters about the topics below, as well as your ideas for other potential chapters that may not be in the initial outline for the handbook. Authors may consider working in writing groups that are interdisciplinary, with expertise encompassing more than one of the STEM disciplines and/or countries of origin.
Chapter abstracts must be submitted no later than Friday, February 23, 2018 to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/STEMHandbook All abstracts will be peer-reviewed and decisions will be shared with submitting authors no later than May 15, 2018. The anticipated timeline for submission of full chapter drafts in the handbook is November 15, 2018. The length of chapters that will be included in the handbook should not exceed 10,000 words. Estimated publication of the handbook is 2019. A PDF with more information can be found at https://goo.gl/p8yYLk. For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Special Issue “Computer Science and Engineering Education for Pre-collegiate Students and Teachers”
There are widespread areas to explore in both engineering education and computer science education. While computer science has roots in mathematics and is often seen as a branch of engineering, based on Johri and Olds’ Cambridge Handbook of Engineering Education Research (2014) and Kadijevich, Angeli, and Schulte’s Improving Computer Science Education (2013), exploration of computer science and engineering education offers a rich field of study.
This Special Issue “Computer Science and Engineering Education for Pre-Collegiate Students and Teachers” is a mechanism to advance and capture the current conversation about computer science and engineering education in pre-collegiate schools—worldwide—by using current research studies in the area. Quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, and action research methodologies are welcome for this special issue. A clear problem and research questions, appropriate theoretical framework, literature review, methodology and methods, analysis, conclusions, and limitations are expected for all submitted articles.
