*CALL FOR PAPERS. A SPECIAL ISSUE OF /EDUCATION FOR INFORMATION/ ON *

*Innovative approaches in (L)IS education*

https://www.iospress.nl/journal/education-for-information/

In education, the last few decades have witnessed a progressive change 
from teacher-centred pedagogies and practices towards student-centred 
and more personalized learning. This means that students’ needs, 
interests, backgrounds and learning styles are placed at the centre with 
a goal to make students more actively and flexibly involved in the 
learning process. Advances in Information and Communication Technology 
(ICT), especially in the areas of online educational programs and video 
content creation and delivery, as well as new managerial models inside 
the Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) have supported the 
implementation of flexible and personalized learning spaces.

Research findings suggest that, in order to be effective and engaging 
for the new generations, learning and teaching approaches should go 
beyond traditional lecture instruction. It is widely acknowledged that 
Millennials, raised with information technology and 24/7 connection to 
information, have a preference for environments that support 
multi-tasking, group work, and engagement with the social aspects of 
learning. In response to the expectations of Millennials and changing 
habits of teachers, HEIs have recognized that in order to promote 
learning, maintain student engagement and increase student satisfaction, 
the discerning utilization of technology and innovative pedagogies were 
essential. Consequently, pedagogies started to combine the traditional 
face-to-face classroom instruction with activities facilitated through a 
range of technological resources outside of the class. As a result, 
blended learning, flipped classroom model, online instruction, video 
based instruction and MOOC have emerged and become increasingly popular.

In this special issue of Education for Information, we intend to invite 
front-line researchers, teachers and professionals to submit original 
research, review articles, best practice examples on**Innovative 
approaches inLibrary and Information Science(LIS) education. Potential 
topics include, but are not limited to:

digital era

·New philosophy of teaching and learning in the digital environment

·Evaluation of innovative methods of teaching/learning in (L)IS

·Change management in teaching (L)IS

·Best practice examples of innovative methods of teaching in (L)IS.

1,500 words). Submissions should be original works not previously
