28.0 CFP: IEEE TPC

I just got this from Jo Mackiewicz, the awesome editor of IEEE TPC. For STC types.

Call for Papers: Tutorials & Teaching Cases
for IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication

The IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication seeks tutorials and teaching cases (i.e., lessons based on industry cases, such as the Enron
bankruptcy, and pedagogical cases) for upcoming issues.
Tutorials

For tutorials, authors present a pedagogical or training approach for
professional communication strategies, tools, or practices. Authors
should
• Describe the approach, making clear 1) the context within
which the approach is used and 2) the materials and methods
used in the approach.
• Justify reporting the approach, stating 1) the practical
problem that the approach addresses and 2) the approach’s
connection to previous research on pedagogy or to industry
practices.
• Assess the outcomes of the approach, providing evidence for
the effectiveness of the approach.
• Clearly explain the implications for professional
communication practitioners and/or educators.

Samples of both tutorials and teaching cases appear on the journal’s
website: http://ewh.ieee.org/soc/pcs/?q=node/53

Teaching Cases
For teaching cases, authors present an original case for use in either
the classroom or industry. Authors should
• Describe the case (tell the story), making clear 1) who, what,
where, when, is involved in the case and 2) which supporting
documents (memos, press releases, etc.) are needed to
understand the case.
• Justify reporting the case, stating 1) the practical problem
that the case addresses and 2) the case’s connection to
previous research on pedagogy or to industry practices.
• Outline instructional guidance, describing 1) the learning
outcomes that are appropriate for the case, 2) the methods
that can be used to assess those outcomes, 3) prompts that
can help students/trainees analyze the case, and 4) questions
that can guide student/trainee discussion.
• Clearly explain the implications for professional
communication practitioners and/or educators.
