Call for Papers - Journal for Multicultural Education

Call for papers for: Journal for Multicultural Education

We hope you are keeping well throughout these difficult times as we face challenges in our teaching and learning communities as well as local communities, families and home environments. In an effort to contribute expertise to help alleviate some of the burdens on today's educators related to teaching and learning in challenges times, including online remote teaching transitions during the COVID-19 crisis, the Journal for Multicultural Education editorial team would like to share this call for papers for rapid-turnaround on the theme of inclusive education practice in a time of collective crisis.

Themes for papers include:

  • COVID-19 and the implications to the rapid rise in online classrooms ensuring equity with the emergence of a new digital divide (access, privacy, inclusivity etc). What are the experiences, barriers, successes?
  • How institutions, teachers and learners support inclusive education practice (examples of culturally responsive teaching) and maintain and strengthen relationships and core practices of multicultural education during a time of physical distancing. 
  • Increases in, outcomes of, and responses to fermenting prejudice in light of the crisis.
  • Cases on institutions, educators and learners supporting others in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Papers accepted for publication will be made free to access by Emerald Publishing for 3 months upon publication.
