The issue of Focused theme: Innovative designs for future education


The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we are living and working. With this change, the educational fields, all institutions and organizations, as well as companies must find new settings to maintain an effective teaching and learning environment. All researchers and educators must rethink the new meaning of innovation in education, such as standards, curriculum, teaching, learning, and assessment. This includes equity, and its extended meaning of culture response, and DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion). To continue its research impact and meet the challenge, we are pleased to announce that the Journal of Research in Innovative Teaching & Learning’s (JRIT&L) March 2023 themed issue will be, “Innovative designs for future education.” We welcome you to submit your work for publication. Suggested topics include educational innovation in policy, curriculum, teaching, learning, assessment, technology, equity, especially in DEI, community-based education, and culture responsive teaching.
