Special issue: Honors Education in the Digital Age

Journal of the European Honors Council invites submissions to Volume 4 Number 1 (2020) for inclusion in a special issue on Honors Education in the Digital Age.

With technology taking an ever-more dominant role in the university classrooms, this special issue aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to reassess and re-conceptualize the role of honors and talent development programs in the Digital Age.

1) draw attention to how emerging technology is changing the landscape of education, and changing the way we live and work, which requires a different skill set, and to

2) present new theoretical ideas that will inspire future research.

Contributions may include original research papers and brief reports in the form of ‘notes’.
