If you are trying to adapt your curriculum to be “digital first,” you might be missing out on the opportunity to be an emergent leader. Digital first has been replaced by mobile first. The digital disruptor is already being disrupted, because our industries are going where their audiences are, and that’s mobile.

Journalism and Mass Communication Educator is seeking research papers on mobile media pedagogy and classroom best practices. How are mobile media best incorporated into a classroom or a curriculum? What works and what doesn’t? What types of professors and students have the greatest success with mobile in the classroom? What are the learning outcomes assessment practices for mobile? The papers will be published in a special edition of Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, and the authors of the three best papers will be recognized with cash prizes at a national mobile media conference sponsored by the College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Deadline for submission of manuscripts is midnight, May 1, 2015. Manuscripts, clearly indicating they relate to this Call for Papers, should be uploaded through the SAGE Track system at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmce [1].

The top manuscripts will be published in the September 2015 issue of Journalism and Mass Communication Educator. The authors of the best papers will be asked to present their papers at the October mobile media conference at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
