Call for Chapter Proposals: E-Learning Innovations in Academic Libraries

Librarians from Appalachian State University invite you to submit a 
proposal for a chapter in their upcoming book, E-Learning Innovations in 
Academic Libraries, to be published by McFarland Publishing.  This 
practical book is intended to be a guide for academic librarians 
interested in the creation and uses of e-learning tools, and will be 
divided into three sections. Section 1 will include e-learning projects 
connected with synchronous/asynchronous classroom learning experiences. 
Section 2 will be comprised of chapters about the creation and/or 
delivery of e-learning objects. Section 3 will cover examples of 
teaching with technology, and focus on ways e-learning enhances the 
in-classroom experience.

Examples of relevant topics include:
     Virtual tours
     Instructional games
     Geo-spatial applications
     Virtual reality applications
     Classroom use of technology

For consideration, e-mail a 1-2 page proposal to either of the editors 
by May 30, 2014, clearly presenting your e-learning innovation and its 
significance. Proposals should include information about the audience 
and need for the e-learning tool, the technology used to create it, the 
length of time it has been used, assessment, and the transferability to 
other libraries.  Final chapters will be 5-7000 words, excluding 
endnotes and bibliography. Authors will be notified of the acceptance of 
their proposals by June 15, 2014. Complete chapters will be due by 
September 30, 2014, as we anticipate publishing this book in Summer 2015.
