Out-of-School Time Book Series Call for Ideas

Are you involved in an innovative out-of-school (OST) time program? Do you know of some great ones in your community? If so, Information Age Publishing welcomes your ideas and recommendations as they launch a new series focused on research and promising practices to further grow and strengthen the OST field.

The Current Issues in Out-of-School Time book series will bridge research and practice, by engaging in discussions on: research-informed practice and practice-informed research; emerging, innovative strategies in the field and groundbreaking research that is deepening our understanding of the what, why, and how of OST; and areas left unexplored or issues that demand urgent attention to improve the access, quality and diverse outcomes for all children and youth.

The open call for book ideas is open until January 31, 2017. The series welcomes ideas for book topics that bring a multi-disciplinary approach and illuminate diverse and timely issues in the field. Some sample topics include equity and access, OST programs’ impact across diverse outcomes, school-community partnerships and systems integration to support learning and increase alignment.
