Call for papers #CfP from #BJET & call for co-authoring book on #Philosophy #AI #humanmachine #interdisciplinary

The call for papers below is for authors researching 'human learning and learning analytics in the age of artificial intelligence' and is an action to celebrate BJET's 50th anniversary. But first ... the call for co-authors to realize a new Rebus book on the subject of Introduction to Philosophy series.


Seeking Authors & Editors for Introduction to Philosophy Series

The Rebus Community initiative Introduction to Philosophy series has grown tremendously, and a few books are nearing the final stages! Led by Christina Hendricks (University of British Columbia), the series includes eight volumes in total, ranging across themes. We are currently seeking faculty interested in contributing to the series by authoring chapters in the following books:
Epistemology
Aesthetics
Metaphysics
Social and Political Philosophy
Philosophy of Religion

See the full list of open and completed chapters.

Authors should have a PhD in philosophy and teaching experience at the first-year level. PhD students and candidates may also be considered as authors, or can contribute to the book in other ways. If you are interested, please let us know in Rebus Projects. Include your CV, a brief summary of your experience teaching an intro to philosophy course, and the chapters you would like to write.

We’re also looking for a co-editor for the Aesthetics book, and an editor forPhilosophy of Science. If you’re interested in taking on one of these roles, read the full job posting and then comment in the activity on Rebus Projects, including some details about your experience and the area in which you are interested.

The editorial team encourages contributions from members of under-represented groups within the philosophy community. Decisions will be made by the team on a rolling basis.

Publication: Online as soon as copy editing complete.
Acceptance Deadline: 10th August 2019
Issue Publication: November 2019.
Guest editor: Andreja Istenič Starčič, Professor University of Primorska & University of Ljubljana; Visiting scholar University of North Texas. For all information, please contact: andreja.starcic@gmail.com

This special section focuses on human learning and learning analytics in the age of artificial intelligence across disciplines.

In May 2018, they organized a working symposium entitled The “The Human-Technology Frontier: Understanding the Human Intelligence 0.2 with Artificial Intelligence 2.0.” The symposium was sponsored by the Association of Educational Communications and Technology (AECT). Distinguished scholars, including learning scientists, psychologists, neuroscientists, computer scientists, and educators addressed some urgent questions and issues on the learner as a whole person, with healthy development of the brain, habit, behaviour, and learning in the fast-advancing technological world. The symposium inspired these special issue topics (which not limited to):

1. Learning and human intelligence: Based on what we know of the brain and what we are likely to understand in the near future, how should learning be defined/redefined?
2. Learning and innovation skills, the 4C - creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration: How could learning technologies support the transformative nature of learning involving all domains of learning, cognitive, psychomotor, affective-social? How could the advanced feedback and scaffolds support the transition from “combinational” to the “exploratory” and “transformational” creativity, thinking and potential consequences for communication and collaboration?
3. Towards a holistic account of a person – brain, body, habits, and environment: What would a learning and research design that embraces a whole person perspective look like?
4. Human intelligence with innovations and advances of technologies: What technologies are most likely to have a positive impact on learning in the short and long future?
5. Properties and units of measures of learning: What are the constructs of learning and beliefs about learners and learners’ needs given the multilevel technologies, collaborative networks, interaction and interface modalities, methodologies and analysis techniques we have to work with?
6. Learning perspectives: Do we face transitions in theories of learning?

In the past 50 years, BJET has been at the front offering a platform and forcing discussions in the above areas. At the 50th anniversary of BJET, we invite interdisciplinary scholars to contribute their most current research to BJET as a way to celebrate BJET’s anniversary.

Please send me the working title of your paper with a short abstract (if you include co-authors, please also provide names of all authors) to my e-mail andreja.starcic@gmail.com by November 30th, 2018.
