Call for Chapter Proposals

            The e-book editors of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (APA, Division 2) have commissioned the preparation of a book titled “In their own words: What scholars want you to know about why and how to apply the science of learning in your academic setting (Editors: Catherine Overson, Christopher Hakala, Lauren Kordonowy, & Victor Benassi). The editors invite potential authors to submit proposals for chapters to appear in a section of the book titled “Putting the Science of Learning into Practice.” From the submitted proposals, a limited number of authors will be invited to prepare a chapter for submission. The purpose of these chapters is to provide teachers and others who work to promote student learning with examples of applications of science of learning in real academic settings. The target audience for the book will be:

  1. college and university teachers in any field or discipline and at any type of institution
  2. secondary school teachers
  3. staff in teaching and learning centers, instructional design centers, learning assistance centers, and student support
  4. other colleagues who work with students to promote students’ academic success.

After proposals have been reviewed by the book editors, authors of accepted proposals will be notified and provided with detailed instructions on how to prepare and submit their chapters. The chapters will follow a similar format to that used in the 2014 STP e-book on Applying the Science of Learning in Education section titled “Putting the Science of Learning into Practice” (Benassi, Overson, & Hakala, Eds.). The proposal submission due date is May 1, 2021.
