                          CALL FOR CASE PROPOSALS

     Cases on Higher Education Spaces: Innovation, Collaboration, and

     A book edited by Dr. Russell G. Carpenter, Assistant Professor of
     English and Director of the Noel Studio for Academic Creativity,
                     Eastern Kentucky University, USA

                      To be published by IGI Global:


              Proposal Submission Deadline: November 15, 2011

            Full Chapter Submission Deadline: January 15, 2012

  University Business magazine, in its recent "Collaboration Station"
  issue published in May, 2011, documented the recent flurry of
  reinvented spaces and new construction that caters to students and
  university populations. In it, they recall the uninviting environments
  of yesterday and look toward the future of designing higher education
  learning spaces. Higher education spaces are undergoing radical
  transformation in an attempt to respond to the needs of 21st-century
  learners and a renewed interest in collaboration that spans beyond the
  walls of departments, colleges, and libraries. Meanwhile, libraries,
  media labs, and other central higher education initiatives are
  reinventing their spaces through remodeled centers and full-scale
  renovation projects. Likewise, some involve new, collaborative
  practices that respond to the ways that students, faculty, and staff
  communicate, research, and learn in the 21st century. Universities are
  drawing from successful reinvented corporate environments as they
  design their new spaces, libraries are becoming centralized hubs for
  collaboration and information design, and the information commons
  concept has taken on a new meaning for higher education leaders.

  This collection invites representatives from higher education, K-12
  education, a range of industries, and the corporate sector to ask
  questions about the future of higher education spaces, collaborative
  partnerships, and technologies that serve to develop new environments
  or reinvent previously unused or underused ones. The editor invites
  single authored and collaboratively written articles from a diverse
  range of innovative higher education and corporate partners to offer
  perspectives on ways in which technology, collaborative efforts, and
  creative thinking can be leveraged to envision new and redesigned
  higher education spaces.

  Inquiries, proposals, and submissions can be sent electronically in MS
