Selection of Topics and Authors

Calls for Topics

Guide topics are selected by YOU!

A survey is distributed through the EDC list-serv bi-annually. Suggestions are reviewed by the EDC Executive and selected based on the following criteria:

  • the topic’s relevance to community’s current needs as well as the living plan;
  • the scope and intention of the guides (i.e., exploring topics foundational to ED practice);
  • the focus, depth, and clarity of the suggested topic(s); and
  • the topic’s readiness for development (e.g., clear concepts, initial work underway by members of the EDC community).

Most recent call for topics was August 2019: Call for topics for the next guide

Submission of a suggested topic does not guarantee selection.

Calls for Expressions of Interest

Once topics are selected, we distribute (through the EDC list-serv) an invite for expressions of interest from national teams of authors. We invite proposals that include:

  • authors’ names, biographies, and CVs;
  • team members’ experience with the particular topic;
  • intended focus of the guide; and
  • a sample outline indicating overall structure and main themes addressed. 

Current call for Curriculum Development Guide expressions of interest: http://edc.stlhe.ca/2019/11/10/ed-guide-expressions-of-interest-invited/
