Call for Papers - Volume 3

2023-01-04

Volume 3, Issue 1 

Deadline: February 28, 2023 

This special issue is an experiment as a Call and Response to three elements at the November  2022 Symposium: the opening and closing keynotes given by Dr. Randy Bass and Dr. Gabrielle  Lindstrom, and the Pop-Up Poetry, with poets Richard Harrison and Beth Everest. 

Randy, Gabrielle, Richard, and Beth will provide essays for this issue, and we invite you, the  Symposium participants, to respond with a scholarly piece that explores an element of what you  heard or experienced in those sessions and what it means to you. To submit, you should have  participated in the session you are responding to. 

Responses are invited as follows: 

Architecture of the Unexpected: Imagining SoTL Beyond the Learning Paradigm  (Dr. Randy Bass) 

  • 1500 word essay exploring one aspect of Randy’s talk, or 
  • 3000-5000 word paper, on several elements or connecting to another body of work  (example, your own scholarship) 

Looking Back to Move Forward: What can SoTL Learning from Indigenous Pedagogies?  (Gabrielle Lindstrom) 

  • 1500 word essay exploring one aspect of Gabrielle’s talk, or 
  • 3000-5000 word paper, on several elements or connecting to another body of work  (example, your own scholarship) 

Shorter submissions will be reviewed by the editorial board, while longer submissions  will be sent for double blind peer review through our usual process. 

Abstracts to the keynotes are available here

Response to Pop-Up Poetry 

We’d like to invite you to join the discussions we’re having here about what the  experience of Pop-Up poetry means for Conference attendees as participants both in  the creation of their individual poems and in the Symposium itself. If you are interested  in doing so, please consider writing a short piece of 1000 words or less on one, two, or  all three of the questions below. But please don’t feel confined by them; if there’s an 

approach to the discussion we haven’t covered in our questions, feel free to write from  it instead. If you'd like to write a longer essay, you can propose that, but we are thinking  of this as a series of short explorations. You have the option to upload an image of your  poem as well, but this is not required. 

  1. What, if any, implication does your experience with Pop-Up poetry have for your engagement with students?
  2. Did having a Pop-Up poem of your own, or sharing it, or hearing one of someone else’s have any effect on your feelings about the Symposium as a whole or how you participated in it? 
  3. Outside of the classroom and the conference centre, did your experience of having a poem created around a word you offered and the conversation that followed with your poet, have any effect on how you’ve approached or thought  about any other aspect of your life or work? 

These submissions will be reviewed by the editorial board. 

Volume 3, Issue 2 

Deadline: March 31, 2023

Submissions may be research articles, reflective essays, calls for collaboration, reports on SoTL  in practice, or other scholarly works written for a broad SoTL audience.
