I received an interesting email the other day about a new book to be published by Information Age looking at Streaming Media in Higher Education. Editors Charles Wankel of St. John’s University in New York and J. Sibley Law of the streaming media company Saxon Mills. It looks like a very useful book, and long overdue. Here’s the text of the email:
We are soliciting chapter proposals for this book on all topics related to streaming media in higher education. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) evaluation, interactive video, collaboration through video, new pedagogic vistas providing visualization in higher education, integration of streaming media within the gamut of other new media, digital video supported case-based teaching.
The book seeks to address questions such as: What roles do digital videos play in online and traditional students’ meaningful learning process? How does streaming media add to the development of university teaching across disciplines? What are the further implications? Etc.
Chapter submissions due April 16. Proposals should be at least 100 words, ideally more. Send them to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org .
Full chapter drafts we be due September 30, 2009. We anticipate publication in December 2009. We have an excellent publisher lined-up for this volume.
