Networked Learning Conference 2020

Call for Book Proposals


Series Editors: Thomas Ryberg, Maarten de Laat and Nina Bonderup Dohn

The Springer Book Series “Research in Networked Learning“is devoted to high quality research-focused monographs and edited volumes on all topics and areas related to networked learning.

The field of Networked Learning is an exciting and innovative area of work. It includes a very active community of researchers investigating the nexus and connections between learners and the use of digital resources, communication and tools in higher education and beyond, along with the underpinning theory, practice and pedagogy of such use.

Networked Learning has become a highly relevant area of research and thinking in our networked and digital world. A major theme of the Book Series to date has been the theory, pedagogy and practice of networked learning, which is concerned with developing approaches to learning that encourage and support learners to be critical and ethically responsible citizens in both their practice and lives.

The educational philosophy of networked learning that has emerged is frequently seen to embrace principles associated with areas of educational thinking, such as critical and inquiry led pedagogy together with democratic and experiential learning. As the field has developed, it has adopted socio-cultural thinking to explore the design and experience of networked learning. More recently, the impact of socio materiality and post humanist and post digital perspectives have emerged as other lens with which to examine a field where the social and the material interact in dynamic and complex entanglements.

The book series welcomes proposals that explore networked learning from any of the above perspectives or theories, as well as other theories considered relevant or important to understanding and developing research in networked learning.
