How must we move forward?
The COVID-19 pandemic is a multidimensional crisis that has brought to the surface deeply-embedded challenges in industry, academia, and the socio-political realm. To move beyond COVID is to recognize the complexity, depth and interdisciplinarity of solutions that will improve social, political, scientific and technological outcomes globally.
Expressions of interest are invited for a Special Issue of the Journal of Innovation in Polytechnic Education exploring the topic of “Beyond COVID.” Authors are invited to submit a 250 to 500 word expression of interest, describing a paper they would like to contribute to the Special Issue. Proposed contributions could take the form of empirical papers, review papers, brief reports, or case studies. Papers will be peer-reviewed, however we encourage creativity and adding personal flair. JIPE is an open access journal that uses Creative Commons licenses.
Potential topics for the special issue must align with the journal’s mandate, and might highlight innovative online teaching and learning practices or interdisciplinary applied research. Papers may include success stories, practice transformations, evidence of curriculum shifts to accommodate new needs, or examples of industry partnering with polytechnics to address the challenges of COVID-19.
Expressions of interest should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 25th, 2021. Authors of successful proposals will be notified by November 5th, 2021. Complete papers will be due by January 5th, 2022.
Questions may be directed to Sarah Nieman, Managing Editor
