Teaching Sensation and Perception

Visual Cognition is pleased to announce a call for papers for a Special Issue focused on Teaching Sensation & Perception.

Many of us who conduct research examining visual cognition also spend a substantial fraction of our professional life teaching. In particular, teaching Sensation & Perception is a common assignment for many perception scientists. Approaches to teaching this material vary widely, including the use of various demonstrations of key phenomena, the inclusion of historical notes that describe the development of core concepts, personal anecdotes, and a wide range of assessment strategies. In this Special Issue, we are looking to hear from authors about their approach to this material, with a particular emphasis on sharing unique ideas about how to provide effective instruction in Sensation & Perception classes while also increasing student engagement with the topic.

  • We take a broad view of Sensation & Perception and will be happy to include submissions that describe instructional strategies for course material in other sensory modalities (e.g. Auditory perception, Olfaction, etc..g.). To reflect the broad approaches to teaching that contributors may use, we welcome submissions about the following topics:
  • Descriptions of successful (or unsuccessful) demonstrations of key phenomena.
  • Historical notes about the field that are relevant to pedagogy.
  • Assessment strategies
  • Novel course structures, including strategies for online and/or asynchronous delivery of course content.
  • Presentation of laboratory-based course components.
  • Reports describing research into the effectiveness of specific instructional strategies.
  • Descriptions of databases/repositories for S&P instructional materials.

 

Authors with questions about the appropriateness of a topic for this Special Issue should contact the Guest Editors, Dr. Anna Kosovicheva ([email protected]), Dr. Julia Strand ([email protected]), and Dr. Ben Balas ([email protected]) with their inquiries.

The deadline to submit abstracts for consideration is August 15th, 2022. After reviewing abstract submissions, the Guest Editors will solicit full manuscript submissions for peer review from a short list of authors.

Submission Instructions

  • Abstracts should be submitted directly via email to all 3 of the Guest Editors for this special issue.
  • Abstracts should be no longer than 500 words and should clearly describe the nature of the proposed contribution.
  • Describing teaching is different than describing research, but contributors should strive to provide citations to prior research regarding relevant pedagogical ideas, known phenomenology of key concepts and demos described in their submissions, and/or existing instructional resources.
  • Abstracts will be reviewed on a rolling basis and the deadline for invited manuscripts is December 30th, 2022. We anticipate publication of the Special Issue in Summer 2023.
