IARSLCE Seeks Conference Proceedings Fellows

By Christi Cowan, CCBP Graduate Assistant

The International Association for Research on Service-Learning and Community Engagement (IARSLCE ) seeks applications for its 2012/2013 Conference Proceedings Editorial Fellows. The fellows produce the new online IARSLCE Annual Conference Proceedings in collaboration with the IARSLCE Publications Committee and the Graduate Student Network.

To apply, submit a letter of interest and CV or resume to Senior Editorial Fellows Barbara Harrison (barbara.a.harrison@gmail.com) and Kathleen Edwards (keedwar2@uncg.edu) by February 14, 2012. Please include a motivation for applying, professional or personal learning goals for the process, scholarly or research interests and relevant experience.

The Proceedings is available before, during, and after the annual conference and includes summaries of the sessions from the conference. It provides a platform for dialogue and enhanced access to scholars and scholarship from around the world.

Editorial Fellows also are exposed to professional development, collaboration and co-construction of scholarly products, and participation in an international learning community. The Fellows are led by two senior editorial fellows and two established practitioner-scholar editors. The team includes incoming Fellows and those who participated the previous year.

The role is a two-year commitment. The Fellows are responsible for editing conference proposals, designing creative expressions of scholarly work, corresponding with session facilitators, reflecting critically on the collaborative process, and promoting and disseminating the Proceedings.

Previous editing experience is desirable but not required. Potential Fellows must be willing to participate in regular Skype calls, actively engage in online communication and decision-making, possess a learning-orientation toward the process, be able to follow through on commitments and meet deadlines. Fellows will be appointed and begin their work in late February 2013. Much of the editorial work will occur May through August.
