Call for Submissions: Learning Inquiry

Dear Colleagues;

As Learning Inquiry starts it second year of publication we are sending out a call for participation in our ongoing attempt to create a transdiciplinary forum to engage the widest variety of perspectives on learning. We’re looking for articles and special issues that push the boundaries and include new perspectives, but also take the opportunity to share research and experiences from particular locations of inquiry to a larger audience.

Learning Inquiry is a refereed scholarly journal, which is devoted to establishing the area of “learning” as a focus for transdisciplinary study. The journal’s goal is to be a forum centered on learning that remains open to varied objects of enquiry, including machine, human, plant and animal learning as well as the processes of learning in business, government, and the professions, both in informal and formal environments. The audience for this journal is anyone interested in learning, understanding its contexts, and anticipating its future.

The first volume of Learning Inquiry has included papers from a wide variety of perspectives that have helped to frame the discourse we hope the journal will engender. Our first issue, on the futures of learning included contributions from Gary Natriello, Erik De Corte, Helen Verran, Mark Warschauer, Stuart Moulthrop, Douglas Kellner and Heinz Mandl on Discovery Networks, Metaphysics and Learning, Play, and Knowledge Management. Leonard J. Waks brought together a “Special Issue on Listening and Reflecting” with participation from Sophie Haroutunian-Gordon, Stanton Wortham, Latherine Schultz, Suzanne Rice, Elizabeth Meadows, Megan Laverty, Andrea English, A. G. Rud and Jim Garrison Past and forthcoming contributions cover topics as diverse as the ethical challenges of training brain surgeons, organizational learning theory, futures of digital learning, music and math, learning and discipline, and situated cognition.

Learning Inquiry strives to strike a balance between presenting innovative research and documenting current knowledge to foster a scholarly dialogue on learning independent of domain and methodological restrictions. Learning Inquiry also presents special issues that identify the central areas of learning inquiry to provide focus for future research.
