Opportunities for COVID-19 Related Education Scholarship
Many educators are having novel experiences during COVID-19 that they are interested in disseminating.
As you think about options for disseminating, consider the following:
- Did I use a scholarly process to create the work? (e.g., did I draw on existing literature, evidence, theory). This will greatly enhance the likelihood of your work being published
- Is what I produced or studied likely to have sustained impact? To be used or have implications beyond COVID-19?
- Is there some generalizable knowledge to be learned from what I produced, from my study, or from my experience?
Disseminate a product for others to use (peer-review isn’t particularly important)
iCollaborative - Special collection of educational materials related to COVID or adapting teaching, curricula, assessment to COVID
Disseminate a product through a peer-reviewed publication
