Call for papers & Advisory Board members

Dr. Caroline Crawford and Dr. Billi Bromer have begun the critical and transformationally important journey of editing a forthcoming double-blind peer-reviewed book titled “Learner-Centered Approaches to Teaching in an Age of Transformational Change” through IGI Global. The objective of this book is to present innovative research defining new and developing solutions and approaches that advance the understanding of the needs of learners which is vital to forming a basis for action. Yet, understanding alone will not be adequate.  Strategies that reflect new understandings of social-emotional needs, inclusive of the effects of trauma as resulting in trauma-informed instruction and restorative practices to provide meaningful support, are equally important transformations to attain. As such, theoretical, research, strategic, and real world strategies come together through this opportunity to recognize the larger transformational changes that are currently occurring throughout the teaching, training and learning professional realms.

The web site for this book is developing, and preliminary information is currently available for review at:

As valuable experts and scholars within the area, we are extending to you a dual invitation, to both submit a scholarly paper addressing learner-centered approaches to teaching in an age of transformational change and an invitation to join the book’s Editorial Advisory Board as an integral member of the double blind peer review process.  As a member of this book’s Editorial Advisory Board, you will receive an invitation to peer review anywhere from 2 to 5 submitted manuscripts for potential inclusion in the forthcoming edited book. This role is integrally important to the quality of the book, which is why we are reaching out to scholars such as yourself, to invite you to join us. Some of the important deadlines that may impact your decision are as follows:

Call for chapter proposals opens on October 4, 2021 and proposals will be accepted through November 3, and possibly later. For authors whose proposal is accepted, the full chapter manuscript submission will be due January 16, 2022 at which time peer review of chapters will begin and continue until approximately March 1, 2022. All chapter proposals must be submitted through the following link:

If you are willing to join us in this endeavor and serve as an Editorial Advisory Board Member for Learner-Centered Approaches to Teaching in an Age of Transformational Change, kindly let us know by replying to this email. We request specific information for inclusion on the Editorial Advisory Board web page as well as Board recognition in the final book:

* your desired name (e.g., Caroline M. Crawford, Caroline Crawford, Carol Crawford, etc.)
* your email address(es) through which you desire to receive communications (that will not block IGI Global emails, such as spam concerns)
* your professional organization alignment (e.g., University of Houston-Clear Lake, independent researcher, etc.)

Please know that sitting on the Editorial Advisory Board does not preclude you from authoring a book chapter, and we strongly encourage you to submit a proposal for a chapter. We also ask that you share our Call for Chapter Proposals at with your colleagues who may be interested in submitting a manuscript for this forthcoming book.
