Proposals are now being sought for an edited collection entitled Teaching Digital Literacy: A Faculty Guide to Integrating Digital Skills with Disciplinary Content. This book will discuss how digital literacy is taught throughout the academy. Digital literacy is often a focus of professionals with specific expertise in the area (educational technologists, instructional designers, librarians). However, digital literacy is also embedded in the disciplines as a way to teach students more about the intersection between technology and literacy within a content area. In this book, we will explore how digital literacy is taught in a variety of disciplines, and highlight innovative pedagogical approaches for teaching digital literacy in the academy. The book is scheduled to be published by Stylus Publishing in 2021.
We welcome chapters of 3,000-4,000 words including references, captions, notes, and tabular information. Each chapter should focus on the authors’ approach to teaching digital literacy within their content area. Contributed chapters should be practical and example-driven so that readers come away with ideas for integrating digital literacy in their own courses. Contributions representing specific topics of interest include examples of digital literacy embedded and taught in the domains of the humanities, social sciences, business, STEM, education, and health sciences.
Authors are invited to submit a chapter proposal as an email attachment in Word or PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before February 28, 2020. Please use the subject line: CFP Digital Literacy. Authors will be notified by March 31, 2020 about the status of their proposals and will be sent chapter guidelines if accepted. Completed chapters are expected to be between 3,000-4,000 words, although shorter or longer chapters are negotiable. Full chapter drafts are expected to be submitted by July 31, 2020.

Author name(s), institutional or organizational affiliation, job title/role
Brief author(s) bio
Proposed chapter title
A summary of the proposed chapter (300-500 words)
