Call for Submissions – Fall/Winter 2021

Educator Perspectives Journal: Fall/Winter 2021

Call for Submissions to EPJ

The editorial team of Educator Perspectives invites manuscripts for potential publication in the next issue.  We seek articles that reflect and showcase a vibrant community of practice across many educational contexts. 

Theme: Lessons Learned During the Pandemic

During this time of uncertainty, stakeholders across the education spectrum created supportive learning environments to ensure students maintained a level of stability in their education.  The pandemic forced innovation, collaboration, and partnership.  Throughout these extraordinary times, educators learned many valuable lessons.  We want to know about best practices or life lessons that worked or did not work during the pandemic.  We hope educators will share strategies for remote learning and/or techniques for forging close connections during difficult times that are worth continuing post-pandemic.  

Submissions Options: 

Submissions should include works in research-based articles including action/classroom research, qualitative and quantitative research.  Essays such as personal reflections, inspirational annotations, classroom practice, interviews, or program descriptions are also welcome.  Submissions should be in proper APA seventh edition format.  References, tables, and appendices do not count against the page limit.  All proposals will be subject to editorial review.
