Second Call - EOI Editor Research & Development in HE
31 May 2019

The HERDSA Executive has decided to discontinue the full-paper option for the annual HERDSA Conference. Previously, the accepted full-papers have been published as Research and Development in Higher Education (RDHE). The Executive has decided to change RDHE by making a call for full papers developed from accepted and presented abstracts from the Annual HERDSA conference and related to the Conference theme. The papers will go through a similar peer-review process as used by RDHE editors in the past. An example can be viewed at http://conference.herdsa.org.au/2016/refereed.html. Previous volumes of RDHE can be viewed at http://www.herdsa.org.au/publications/conference_proceedings. 

The HERDSA Executive is now seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from a current member/s to take on the role of Editor for Research and Development in Higher Education, Next generation Higher Education: Challenges, Changes and Opportunities, Vol 42. (2019 Conference).

The editor will establish a voluntary editorial team which will be responsible for managing the call for submissions, developing and managing the review process, and finalising the formatting of the papers in consultation with the Publications portfolio of the HERDSA Executive. The Editor will become an Officer of HERDSA for the duration of the editorial process.

Expressions of Interest (two-page maximum) should include: name and contact details, brief CV, previous/current editorial experience, and, if it is a team application, how the members will work together to meet the timelines. This EOI is intended to apply to Vol 42 only, although subsequent application may be made for Vol 43 (2020 conference).

Please send your EOI to office@herdsa.org.au by Monday 31st May 2019.

Connected Curriculum Seminar at UWA by Associate Professor Anne Gardner
Tuesday 4 June 2019

Connected Curriculum Seminar
Associate Professor Anne Gardner 
11am – 1pm followed by lunch
Tuesday 4th June, 2019
The University of Western Australia – Margaret Fairweather Education Space (view location https://www.web.uwa.edu.au/contact/map?id=5070)

Register by 29th May, 2019 on https://connected-curriculum-seminar-anne-gardner-tickets.eventbrite.com.au

This interactive seminar will be of interest to educators and researchers in all disciplines of higher education. The Connected Curriculum (Fung 2017) is a framework for whole of program design that links learning with research and practice, and between subjects and students. It allows us to frame questions around where and how students engage in collaborative interaction with others as well as the object of study. In this seminar participants will learn about the various dimensions of the framework and then apply these to their program to assess the overall program experience for students.

Anne Gardner is Head of School in the School of Professional Practice and Leadership in the Faculty of Engineering & IT at University of Technology Sydney. She is an Australian Learning & Teaching Fellow, Deputy Editor of Australasian Journal of Engineering Education, and Vice-president of the Australasian Association for Engineering Education. Anne has research experience in blended and collaborative learning, self and peer assessment, academic identity development and professional practice in the context of engineering. She is also mindful of the need to encourage the translation of educational research into academic practice.

Call for EOI - Co-Editor International Journal for Academic Development (IJAD)
25th July 2019

Co-editor position for the International Journal for Academic Development

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a co-editor position for the International Journal for Academic Development (IJAD). We are looking for a co-editor based in Oceania, Africa, the Middle East, or South America to replace the position currently held by Dr Kathryn Sutherland (New Zealand).

IJAD is the premier international journal for academic development (also called educational development and faculty development). Four issues of IJAD are published annually through Routledge/Taylor & Francis (http://www.tandfonline.com/ijad). The manuscript submission and review process is managed through the ScholarOne online system.

The co-editor appointment will be for 4 years (1 January 2020 until 31 December 2024) and the appointee will work collaboratively with the three ongoing co-editors—Dr Klara Bolander Laksov (Sweden), Dr Peter Felten (USA), and Dr Johan Geertsema (Singapore)—and the five associate editors. Normally the editorial team chooses an associate editor from the same region as the new co-editor in consultation with that co-editor.

The role of co-editor provides opportunity to influence the academic development research agenda and to expand linkages between one’s own region and the international academic development community. The position is voluntary, involves working to tight deadlines, and participating in monthly online meetings. Typically, at least one co-editor attends the ICED Council meeting each year.

Applications from individuals who would like to join the team are welcome.


Brief written expressions of interest should be e-mailed to Dr Allan Goody, President of the International Consortium for Educational Development (agoody56@gmail.com), no later than 25 July 2019 and should

a. outline your reasons for wanting to undertake the role,
b. address the selection criteria below,
c. provide the names of two members of the international academic development community who are willing to be contacted as referees, and
d. include your current Curriculum Vitae.

The following criteria are essential:
1. Active scholar in academic/educational/faculty development, with a record of publications in this area.
2. Passionate about academic development in higher education and committed to encouraging high-quality academic research and publications in the field.
3. Professionally active in a continent not otherwise represented by a current co-editor (i.e. NOT Europe, North America, or Asia).
4. Experienced in editing and publishing and aware of issues associated with editing an international journal.
5. Excellent organisational and communication skills and demonstrable ability to work to tight deadlines.
6. Demonstrated ability to work well with others (for example, joint publications, grants, member of a national network, etc.).
7. Willing to participate in regular editorial meetings through online video conferencing (often scheduled outside working hours in order to accommodate the schedules of co-editors from four different continents).
8. Committed to the goals of the journal’s parent organisation, the International Consortium for Educational Development (ICED): http://icedonline.net/
9. Membership in one of the member networks of ICED.

In addition, the following criteria are desirable:
10. Familiarity with online manuscript management systems.
11. Familiarity with APA referencing, copy-editing, or access to administrative support for copyediting.
12. Ability to start by 1 January 2020.
