The Third Annual Imagination, Inquiry & Innovation Institute (I-4)
STEAM Toward Equity | October 3, 2015
The goal of this yearly Imagination, Inquiry, and Innovation Institute, now in its third year, is to bring together innovative thinkers and practitioners in a broad range of fields (fine and performing arts, media and communication specialists, humanities, education, sciences, technology, engineering, medicine, healthcare, and business) to share their work with one another. This year, the theme is "STEAM Toward Equity." STEAM education incorporates art, literature, linguistics, social sciences, and the performing arts into science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. This year, I-4 presenters will show ways in which they creatively demonstrate STEAM within a range of disciplines, especially in ways that promote equity and social justice.
The Journal for Invitational Theory and Practice (JITP) (ISSN-1060-6041) publishes once a year and promotes the tenets of invitational theory and practice, self-concept theory, and perceptual psychology. First published in 1992, it is currently indexed in the ERIC and EBSCO databases. The JITP seeks to publish articles under two priorities. First, manuscripts are encouraged that examine and expand the theory of invitational learning and development, investigate the efficacy of invitational practices, and relate these beliefs and findings to other theories of human development and behavior. Second, manuscripts are considered without directly relating their discussion/findings to ITP if their focus is on theories which are compatible with ITP. The JITP accepts articles for submission year round; however the submission deadline for each issue is July 1 of each year.
