Call for Papers: IOS Press - A special issue of Education for Information on non-textual pedagogies: Learning beyond words

Building on the 2016 special issue of Education for Information on innovative pedagogies in LIS (volume 32, issue 1), the IOS Press are seeking articles for a special issue on Non-Textual Pedagogies to be published in fall/winter 2018.  They welcome both conceptual and empirical papers (approximately 6,000 words) as well as shorter discussions of pedagogical innovations and applied practice (approximately 1,500 words). Submissions should be original works not previously published nor undergoing review for publication in another journal at the time of submission.

The scope of this special issue includes:
·        Explorations of pedagogies that go beyond traditional textual and verbal approaches in information studies and other fields (including but not limited to embodied, arts-informed, design thinking, practice-led, experience-based, productive teaching and more).
·        Perspectives of teachers, learners, administration, staff, practitioners and more from anywhere in the world.
·        Techniques and research on using modalities beyond the visual to teach information studies content.
·        Theoretical and methodological approaches to pedagogy and curriculum design that are underrepresented in the information studies literature.
·        Discussions of institutional support and student reception of such pedagogical approaches.
·        Evidence of the effects of non-textual pedagogical approaches after graduation.
·        Reflections on the impact and effectiveness of non-traditional pedagogies.
·        Thoughtful use of new technologies for non-textual teaching and learning.
·        Uses of "old" technologies, both innovative and tried-and-true, for non-textual teaching and learning.
·        Intersections between course content and other department/institution offerings (reading groups, research centers, seminar series, organizations, institutes and more).
