Call for Proposals: Innovation in Sustainable Solutions
Expressions of interest are invited for a Special Issue of the Journal of Innovation in Polytechnic Education on the topic of “Innovation in Sustainable Solutions”. Authors (co-authored submissions are welcome!) are invited to submit a 250-500 word expression of interest, describing a paper they would like to contribute to the Special Issue. Proposed contributions could take the form of empirical papers, review papers, brief reports, or case studies, and are expected to link to existing literature on the topic.
Potential topics for the special issue might include pedagogical approaches within, or the impact of projects or programs focused on sustainable infrastructure and construction, alternative energy, smart cities, or advanced manufacturing. Papers may include success stories, best practices, evidence of curriculum shifts to accommodate new needs, or examples of industry partnering with polytechnics to address their own operational need for talent or innovation.
Expressions of interest should be submitted to bit.ly/JIPEISS by Friday, March 1, 2019. Authors of successful proposals will be notified by March 15. Complete papers will be due by August 31, 2019. Authors may be asked to act as peer reviewers for other papers in the special issue.
