Call for Chapter Proposals
At school in the world: Developing globally engaged teachers
Globalization of Teacher Education Book Series
by Rowman & Littlefield Publishing
We invite proposals for the forthcoming book from Rowman and Littlefield Publishing, At school in the world: Developing globally engaged teachers
Internationalization of higher education (IoH) writ large has been a subject of attention and the focus of much research in recent years. However, internalization of teacher education is in its infancy. This volume addresses a need for a collection of research, case studies, and applied practice exemplars in support of educators everywhere who want to bring global perspectives into their classrooms and who want to develop the intercultural agility of their students.
Objective & Focus
The focus of this book is on methods and approaches for fostering the development of pre-service teachers as educators who will ultimately incorporate global citizenship and intercultural competence development into their K-12 curriculum. This book will be one of the first on this topic that includes examples from the field (syllabi, curriculum components, voices of teacher educators, pre-service teachers, etc.)
We will endeavor to achieve a representative balance of contributors from around the globe and will prioritize proposals that focus on or include issues of social justice (in a global or local-global context). The social justice aspect of this book will be reflected in two ways: the chapter contributors and the focus of the chapters. We especially seek proposals from researchers and practitioners from across the globe and we encourage joint submissions that represent cross-cultural collaboration.
Email (via attachment):
- an abstract (500-1000 words excluding references, submitted as a Word document)
- brief CV for each author (in English to the extent possible and no more than two pages)
All manuscripts will undergo a double-blind review.
