Call for papers

Monday, 1 June, 2020 - 12:30

Special issue of Sustainability on "Online Global Citizenship, Open Education and Civic Collaboration".  

Members may want to consider submitting for this special issue of Sustainability - the international, cross-disciplinary, peer-reviewed and open access journal of environmental, cultural, economic, and social sustainability of human beings. The journal publishes original research articles, reviews, conference proceedings (peer-reviewed full articles) and communications.

The special issue, focusing on "Online Global Citizenship, Open Education and Civic Collaboration", is guest edited by Prof. Dr. Katherine Wimpenny (Research Centre for Global Learning: Education and Attainment, Coventry University, UK) and Prof. Dr. Daniel Burgos (Research Institute for Innovation & Technology in Education (UNIR iTED), Universidad Internacional de La Rioja (UNIR), Logroño, La Rioja, Spain).

A message from the editors:

"We invite papers that analyse how curriculum infrastructure is responding to online collaborations in ways that propose new pedagogies that can respond to achieve sustainability goals, and in inclusive ways, which engender wellbeing. Further, as (Third) online spaces can also be experienced as destabilising, disquieting spaces, we ask what facilitation and follow-up is required when considering online exchanges, including ways in which knowledge traditions and assumptions can be safely challenged. Moreover, how might action-orientated change through collaboration in the online space translate back into the learners’ locale for civic learning? We welcome international and comparative case studies as well as conceptual papers proposing innovative ways to bring cross and trans-disciplinary perspectives together including public collaboration."


Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020
