Designs for Learning is an international, Nordic-based peer-reviewed and open access journal in electronic format. The scope of the journal is to publish articles on designs for learning, technology enhanced learning, design-based research, multimodal knowledge representations, embodied interaction, on-line environments, and learning ecologies. We welcome original articles that address theoretical or methodological issues, as well as empirically based research. We also welcome (multimodal) publications that include formats such as audiovisual material.
The Nordic journal Designs for Learning issues a call for papers for a Special Theme Collection comprising academic articles focused on re-representation of multimodal empirical material.
Visual communication is beginning to dominate communication in several domains. In education, for example, the use of moving images is easily distributed to pupils with digital tools, and students create multimodal artefacts as part of their learning outcomes. Using video as an observation tool results in a dense flow of information in different modes of communication. In design research, a key aspect of the process is the creation of interactive artefacts that are not easily presented in a traditional paper but rather requires a multimodal re-representation.
While written text is still the dominant mode of communication for research results, we are interested in exploring how multimodal transcriptions can be re-represented and transformed into audiovisual representations on a screen in an academic journal. We, therefore, invite you to submit multimedia items to be peer-reviewed for publication alongside with your written analysis.
The submission deadline is 1st of October 2017, and the instructions for authors can be found here. Articles are welcome from across the world.
