Critical Issues in the Future of Learning and Teaching

This series represents a forum for important issues that do and will affect how learning and teaching are thought about and practised. All educational venues and situations are undergoing change because of information and communications technology, globalization and paradigmatic shifts in determining what knowledge is valued. Our scope includes matters in primary, secondary and tertiary education as well as community-based informal circumstances. Important and significant differences between information and knowledge represent a departure from traditional educational offerings heightening the need for further and deeper understanding of the implications such opportunities have for influencing what happens in schools, colleges and universities around the globe. An inclusive approach helps attend to important current and future issues related to learners, teachers and the variety of cultures and venues in which educational efforts occur. We invite forward-looking contributions that reflect an international comparative perspective illustrating similarities and differences in situations, problems, solutions and outcomes.

In keeping with Michael’s spirit, the friends and family of Dr. Michael Kompf have established the Dr. Michael Kompf Graduate Student Travel Scholarship , which will be administered and housed in the Faculty of Education of Brock University. Tax deductible contributions to the endowment fund for the award can be made by cheque to Brock University with the subject note: Dr. Michael Kompf Graduate Student Travel Scholarship, or contributions can be made online by going to: www.brocku.ca/onlinedonations/ and clicking on the drop down box for the Dr. Michael Kompf Graduate Student Travel Scholarship.
