Call for Proposals
To facilitate medical and healthcare education (including the preparation and professional development of physicians, nurses, professional staff, and administrators), educators and instructional designers must gain a critical understanding of the contemporary issues facing a wide range of professionals in a variety of schools, hospitals, clinics, and other health-related facilities. Similarly, to advance the adoption and application of instructional design methods, it is vital for healthcare professionals to value and gain knowledge of grounded, systematic design principles and practices.
This special issue of the Journal of Applied Instructional Design (JAID) will focus on research and the development of innovative training and educational programs that apply systematic instructional design tools and techniques to create engaging, effective, and efficient learning experiences. The fundamental purpose of the special issue is to nurture collaboration between academics and practitioners in instructional design and healthcare as a means of advancing learning and disseminating new ideas. Manuscripts that highlight the skills and knowledge instructional designers require to be successful in healthcare settings, or otherwise address contemporary trends and issues in healthcare that affect the analysis, design, development, implementation and/or evaluation of training and education are also welcome.
Please submit a short proposal, including a title, a one to two page summary, and an outline of the proposed manuscript to Dr. Hirumi at Atsusi.Hirumi@ucf.edu by midnight, Sunday, March 31, 2019. Selected authors will be notified by April 30 and invited to submit complete manuscripts by Friday, August 2, 2019 for publication in the October 2019 edition of JAID. Please Note: An invitation to submit a complete manuscript does not guarantee the manuscript will be published; all manuscripts must still undergo full peer review process.
