Reviewers should in the first instance email the Rob Farrow (Book Reviews Editor) via rob.farrow [@] open.ac.uk with an expression of interest. This should include a brief biographical description indicating your suitability as a reviewer and a list of all volumes you would be willing to review. (Reviews are commissioned on a first-come, first serve basis for qualified reviewers.) Reviews are due on the 31st March 2018 and will be published in the summer edition of JIME.
Reviews should be around 1500-2000 words long and should focus on the relevance of the volume for educational technologists, instructional designers, and educators working in higher education institutions.
