Call for Submissions – Voice of Teachers journal special edition on Peace Education

Dear Colleagues,

You are invited to submit your research paper for possible inclusion in a special issue of the Voice of Teachers journal devoted to Peace Education. Peace education is the practice of teaching the knowledge, values, and skills necessary to promote peace at all levels, and we invite your submissions on any theme related to this topic.

The Voice of Teachers is an online, peer-reviewed journal designed to strengthen the fundamental connection between grassroots teacher professional development, world-class research, and big ideas. Overseen by a guest editor and a diverse group of peers, each issue addresses a theme of pressing importance to teachers. The Peace Education issue of the Voice of Teachers will be guest-edited by Toh Swee-Hin, a distinguished professor at the UN-mandated University for Peace in Costa Rica and UNESCO Peace Education Prize laureate (2000).

In keeping with the key peace education principles of embracing inclusivity, diversity and creativity, we encourage a wide variety of submissions from a wide variety of peace education practitioners, educators, writers, theorists, and researchers. Possible contributions include scholarly research and reports, professional development materials, lesson plans, personal reflections and narratives, creative writing, multimedia resources, book reviews, and visual art. Please keep in mind that your work will be reviewed using the scholarly peer review process.

If you are interested in submitting your work for possible inclusion in this upcoming issue of the Voice of Teachers, please use the following online form. The deadline to submit your work is January 31st, 2011. Please ensure that your submission does not include your name or professional affiliation.
