Call for Papers
Communication education and professional practice are currently undergoing a massive transformation as a result of the digital revolution. All around us people are teaching, learning and professionally practicing with the aid of new technologies that apparently challenge traditional methods. The ubiquitous nature of new technologies has compelled communication educators and professionals to plug in to the trending developments in the age of the new media to creatively adapt them to their own purposes.
ACSPN invites papers from its members/future members, other interested individuals, local and international organizations, associations, institutions, agencies, the private sector and governments for participation in its 2015 annual conference to examine Communication Education and Practice in the Age of New Media
Participants are encouraged to explore theoretical, conceptual and contextual issues in the areas of Communication Education and Practice in the Age of New Media as they relate to any of the sub-themes or other areas under the theme.
