The pandemic has shaken up education at every level. We seek contributions for our next issue of Transformations: The Journal of Inclusive Scholarship and Pedagogy (Penn State University Press) for a special section on "Teaching in a Pandemic." The contribution can be a reflective essay or creative work on teaching and learning during the COVID-19 crisis. Contributors can come from any sector of education: professors, graduate students, teaching assistants, K-12 teachers, administrators, support staff, home schoolers, parents, policymakers, and students. The due date for submissions is 15 August 2020.
Possible topics include:
- Technology: connecting with and engaging students online; the possibilities and limitations of technology; pedagogical strategies, trials, and errors.
- Affect: navigating the emotions of teaching and learning during a pandemic.
- Precarity: the impact of economics, race, (dis)ability, and other social inequalities on teaching and learning.
- Health: the effects of sickness, the responsibilities of care-taking; the possibilities and limitations of self-care; physical and mental health.
- Labor: emotional work; balancing home and work; gender and work; risk and safety; activism.
- Contexts: public policy; local, national, and global politics; environmental and racial justice.
