One of the most effective ways we can improve and protect education is to do our very best to capture and share lessons learned and noteworthy examples arising out of crisis, and to strengthen bridges across practitioners, researchers, and policy makers to ease the use of such information in policy and practice.
In response to COVID-19 and the urgent need for evidence on effective preparedness, mitigation, and recovery strategies, the Journal on Education in Emergencies (JEiE) seeks contributions for a special issue on education in pandemics and public health crises. Dr Randa Grob-Zakhary, CEO of Insights for Education, is guest-editor of this Special issue. Through this work, Insights for Education wants to help lift voices not often heard, to make sure we can build back better.
On behalf of JEiE and the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies, we invite you to share experiences in the form of research articles, field note submissions that present innovative tools or approaches related to pandemics and education in emergencies, or observations, debates, and commentary on research work.
National education systems and their surrounding ecosystems of educators, school leaders, parents, students, funders, advocates, and many others have struggled with choices reflecting the interface between health and education, during SARS, H1N1, MERS, Ebola, and COVID-19. Let's make sure we capture and lift the diverse and valuable voices that can help repair what has been broken, and strengthen resilience to protect against future crises.
Recognising the global scope of these issues, we seek submissions from all regions of the world and we welcome abstracts of submissions authored in French and English.
Abstract Submission deadline: 17 May 2021
Projected publication: May/June 2022
