I just like to hint to an interesting Call for Papers titled „Digital Innovations in Teacher Education„. The University of Teacher Education Vienna in cooperation with the Reflecting Education Journal solicits original (research) papers framing pedagogic and didactic considerations, applicative scenarios or taxonomies in the field of technology-enhanced (language) learning and teaching within the context of teacher education/development.
There is little doubt that digital innovations have initiated a vivid discussion concerning the reformation or adaptation of higher education in general (cf. Wiley 2009, Strasser & Greller 2014). Especially in the field of teacher education, certain developments concerning a curricular implementation of digital technologies in initial teacher education and teacher training (including post-graduate teacher education, and continuing professional development/teacher development) can be noted. However, experts (cf. Wiley 2009, Siemens 2004) suggest that especially technological developments have often not been didactically implemented in teacher education/development curricula
The deadline for submission is February 7th, 2015 – find here the Call for Paper.
