Call for Publications from Academic Exchange Quarterly (AEQ)
The emergence of web-based instructional delivery has expanded the continuum of learning environments and has resulted in an explosion of “online learning” initiatives. These online efforts run the gamut from independent, self-paced instruction to cohort-based, highly interactive and totally asynchronous learning environments. For each of these online delivery methods—and in the “blended” courses that include both site-based and online components—shifts from previous distance- and site-based instruction have occurred.
Research responses to these and other areas impacted by the online learning environment—course management systems, the impact of the online teaching experience on site-based instruction, online student learning styles, information resources for online students, online and distributed education policies, and discipline-specific challenges for online learning—are welcome. Units of analysis may range from the instructor/student or individual course, to a program, the institution or the entire online learning system. To be most helpful in this academic exchange, empirical studies (including singular surveys and case studies) should be clear and explicit about their methodology so that others can replicate or advance their research.
Who May Submit:
Submissions are welcome from teachers, faculty members, administrators, researchers, and other personnel at all levels, as well as any others who are actively involved in directing or providing support services to online learners, online instructors and online programs.
Please identify your submission with the keyword: ONLINE
Submission deadline: On-going submission requests with cut-off date set by issue publication month.
