Contribute to the writing of the international anthology “Learning in University Education – Contemporary Standpoints” to be published
by Libri Publishing Ltd. Join fellow authors for an inspiring and productive symposium on Aegina Island, Greece. Here all authors of accepted chapters will meet from June 3-7, 2012 to review, edit and finalise their chapters for the anthology. This will be the 7th international residential symposium organised by LIHE, especially designed to have a group of international experts join forces and collaboratively work on finalising a manuscript for international publication.

With this anthology we wish to encourage a move from a discipline-based view to a learning-based view on higher education. We do so by introducing contemporary standpoints on learning. Learning is at the core of university education – as concept, process and outcome. But what is learning? When does learning take place? What does learning look like? How is learning measured? In what ways are learning conceptualized and dealt with at universities around the world? What are the consequences of such conceptualizations of learning for students’ learning processes and students’ learning outcomes? Such questions are of high relevance to everybody working with improving the quality of university education.

This international anthology will give some answers and raise some questions for future research.

We invite authors to write about:

learning as concept: What is learning?
learning as process: How does learning take place?
learning as outcome: How is learning manifest and measured?
learning from a philosophical standpoint: How is learning perceived and how does such perception affect the perception of learning?
learning from a theoretical standpoint: What does a theory of learning look like?
learning from a practical standpoint: How is learning directed or taking place in universities?

We do not enforce one particular theory, methodology or philosophy of science as long as you EXPLICITLY DISCUSS LEARNING in relation to HIGHER EDUCATION.

We encourage cross-disciplinary discussions, theoretical pieces, eclectic pieces, case studies, and best practice examples and contributions. We do not seek chapters addressing overall political or contextual aspects of learning, such as accreditations, benchmarks, institutional policies, etc.

The anthology is edited by Dr. Professor Claus Nygaard, Copenhagen Business School; Dr. John Branch, Stephen M. Ross School of Business and Center for Russian, East European, & Eurasian Studies, University of Michigan; Professor Clive Holtham, Cass Business School, City University London

Submit no later than February 1, 2012 your CHAPTER PROPOSAL for the international anthology. We ask you to format your chapter proposal in accordance with the LIHE 2012 –STYLESHEET GUIDE. Your chapter proposal will be double blind reviewed and we will notify you by February 10, 2012 about the status of your chapter proposal. Submissions are made on our online submission server.

All authors of ACCEPTED chapter proposals will be invited to submit a FULL CHAPTER no later than March 31, 2012. All full chapters will be double blind reviewed. You will be notified by April 10, 2012 if your chapter will be included in the anthology.

AUTHORS of ACCEPTED CHAPTERS must register for the Symposium no later than May 1, 2012. This is a VERY important deadline, because we have pre-booked all rooms of the conference venue and must confirm our booking.

FULL CHAPTERS will be circulated to all REGISTERED AUTHORS. Reading and review groups are formed based on the themes addressed in the full chapters. When we meet for the symposium all authors get individual feedback from the editors, and from their review group. This feedback helps the authors finalise their chapters for inclusion in the anthology.

Your chapter proposal has to be submitted to our online symposium server. Submissions MUST be formatted according to LIHE 2012 – STYLESHEET GUIDE to be considered for review!

It is NOT possible for an author to submit more than one chapter proposal to this LIHE symposium. Multiple submissions by the same author are NOT accepted. Nor is it possible to be an author of one chapter and a co-author of another chapter.

This will be a residential symposium. All participating authors must stay in the venue hotel in order to optimise opportunities for collaboration throughout the LIHE symposium. The duration of the LIHE symposium is from Sunday 6pm to Thursday 10am.

At least one author of an accepted full chapter has to participate on location. While a full chapter can be written and thus submitted by several co-authors, a maximum of TWO
co-authors can represent a full chapter at the LIHE symposium.

It is NOT possible to attend the LIHE symposium via internet.
