Dr Michael Gallagher together with Dr Koula Charitonos (Institute of Educational Technology, Open University) and Dr Rovincer Najjuma (Makerere University) are editing a special issue of the Journal of Interactive Media in Education. 

The Journal of Interactive Media in Education is a peer reviewed open access online journal in educational technology that focuses on the implications and use of digital media in higher or post-compulsory education.  It aims to foster a multidisciplinary and intellectually rigorous debate on both the theory and practice of interactive media in higher or post-compulsory education. 

The special issue will explore understandings of connected learning provision at tertiary and higher education (HE) in contexts that constitute forced displacement - in emergency settings, and in resettlement and asylum contexts. This special collection will look at how educational programmes and initiatives at higher and tertiary level, supported by technology and aimed at forcibly displaced students (i.e., refugees, people seeking asylum, stateless people), might further inform efforts at educational inclusion of marginalised and non-dominant communities. 

The deadline for submission of the abstract is the 1st of September 2023 with the full manuscript by the 18th of December 2023.
