Call for contributions

This MELSIG book will capture innovative practice in teaching and learning with smartphones and tablets. As with previous MELSIG publications, the approach will be practical, creative and include examples of actual practice. An important dimension of the Smart Learning book will be its dual interest in both formal teaching and learning, and in how smart technologies are changing the way we engage with our university life beyond the classroom as academics and students.

You can contribute to the book in a number of ways therefore,

All submissions will be peer reviewed to ensure the writing, the examples and ideas are of a high quality.

If you would like support with your writing please let me know and we’ll find a way! (a.j.middleton AT

We particularly welcome submissions which are co-authored.

We also welcome submissions from students and first time authors and will endeavour to provide support through our peer review process.

Previous publications have been in e-Book format though we will explore this proposal with publishers depending on the response to this call.

  • Acceptance, revisions or non-acceptance by 30th September 2014

Expressions of Interest

Provide some information about your idea

MELSIG is committed to the principles associated with open educational content. We plan to make some content freely available under a Creative Commons licence. Because open licences affect publisher interest we will not make any decisions about publication licences until we have heard from you and others considering making a submission. We will then share the consensus view with you so you can choose to opt out if you do not agree with the decision.
