Due to **numerous** requests for extensions due to the Thanksgiving holiday
and other looming deadlines, the deadline for the call for papers has been
extended until *December 15*. We look forward to your paper!

>    - student or teacher attitudes
>    - learning outcomes
>    - classroom social and instructional dynamics
>    - variations of classroom flipping strategies
>    - student retention and/or attendance
>    - homework submissions and collaboration systems
>    - recruiting teachers and/or students
>    - teacher efficiency and workload
