The Journal of Teaching and Learning with Technology (JoTLT) is issuing a call for a special issue on transitioning to online teaching and learning in a time of urgency. Faculty, students, and staff are currently experiencing the need to pivot teaching and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage manuscripts from faculty, students with faculty co-authors/sponsors, staff (such as instructional designers, consultants, technologists, and advisors), and administrators. 

Authors are encouraged to submit work discussing how the pandemic’s impact on teaching and learning challenged current practice, encouraged experimentation, or brought about novel conclusions. Submissions should fit in one of the following categories. Please carefully categorize your submission as that determines how we will review your manuscript. Categories include:

  • Reflective essays in which the author(s) provide a narrative of their experience pivoting instruction during the pandemic   
  • Articles that are data-driven studies 
  • Case studies illustrating SoTL and its applications 
  • Quick Hits that make a brief contribution describing innovative teaching practices or an innovative use of a teaching or learning tool 

Abstracts of up to 300 words should be submitted to by May 15, 2020. 

Please include JoTLT Special Issue Abstract submission in the subject line of your email submission.

Established in 2012 by Indiana University’s Faculty Academy on Excellence in Teaching (FACET), the Journal of Teaching and Learning with Technology (JoTLT) is an international journal dedicated to exploring efforts to enhance student learning in higher education through the use of technology.
