Three Special Research Awards

Deadlines for Special Research awards may be the same as other awards; however, for the following Special Research Awards, please contact the chair of the Research Committee, Dr. Margarete Imhof  imhof@uni-mainz.de.


The Synergist Award

The ILA Research Committee announces the listening research Synergist Award for 2015. Outlined in a 2008 White Paper steered by Dr. Graham Bodie, Dr. Laura Janusik, and Dr. Tuula-Riitta Välikoski, the Synergist Award promotes the advancement of listening knowledge and research through a targeted focus. Using a deductive process, listening scholars and educators have developed a set of priorities for listening research. The priorities include four initiatives and seven research questions, as well as contextualized questions in the areas of Business, Education, Healthcare, Religion/Spirituality, and Theory/Research. Achieving these priorities will assist researchers in providing a solid foundation for future listening research in terms of future theory development. A Synergist is one who cooperates with another. Thus, the researchers granted the ILA Synergist Award will be those cooperating with international listening scholars to build listening theory. We encourage multi‑author proposals as well as cross‑cultural research but will accept single authored work assuming it meets relevant objectives.


The ILA Synergist Award was developed to encourage researchers to address one or more of the stated priorities (cf. http://www.listen.org/WhitePaper). The researcher(s) awarded the cash prize (up to $500) are expected to present the findings at the next ILA conference as well as permit the International Journal of Listening the first right of publication for the first manuscript stemming from this work.


To be eligible for the ILA Synergist Award a researcher or a team of researchers must submit a proposal for a research project including the goals, the projected theory and method, and specify how the project addresses one of the research questions specified in the white paper, and timeline with milestones (max. 5 standard pages). To be eligible for the ILA Synergist Award the lead author must be an ILA member. Please send your submission to the chair of the research committee at imhof@uni-mainz.de.  The deadline for receipt of the award applications is January 31, 2015.
