Call for Papers: Pedagogy in the Wake of a Pandemic

Family Science Review (FSR) is seeking manuscripts for a special issue, Pedagogy in the Wake of a Pandemic, due Dec. 1, 2020.

In late 2019, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. The impact of the virus on every aspect of life is ongoing, with many aspects of daily life undergoing dramatic and rapid shifts, and in some cases, stopping altogether. However, in most settings, higher education continued.  Many institutions sought to quickly adapt courses to online environments; the extent to which this solution has been effective or accessible has yet to be determined. The COVID-19 crisis continues to raise important issues surrounding education. This special issue intends to provide a platform for scholarly papers on teaching and learning research specific to pedagogical practices utilized during the pandemic.

Please contact the Guest Editors, Debra L. Berke, Ph. D., CFLE, or Nikki DiGregorio, Ph.D., to submit a manuscript for the Family Science Review special issue.

Additionally, FSR has a Professional Development and Reflection Corner (PDRC) which is geared toward reflective pieces. The PDRC is interested in reflections on the COVID-19 experience and how it has impacted your research, teaching, students, professional and/or family life. Authors are encouraged to submit commentaries pertaining to their own institution’s response to the pandemic, as well as highlight some of the challenges, successes, and lessons learned as educators, seasoned or newly beginning.
