Request for Proposals: COVID-19, Online Instruction, and Open Educational Resources

KULA: Knowledge Creation, Dissemination, and Preservation Studies is requesting proposals for a forum on the shift to online teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic. We seek commentaries and teaching reflections (especially contributions that openly share syllabi and teaching materials with the broader community) from faculty members, librarians, and other staff working at post-secondary institutions who have transitioned to and developed pedagogical materials, especially Open Educational Resources (OERs), for online instruction in the last year. How has your teaching evolved? What are the demands and challenges of the digital environment? What has worked, and what has not? How have students responded?

As a multidisciplinary journal, we encourage submissions from scholars and practitioners across disciplines, and we are interested in experiences with both synchronous and asynchronous teaching. We also welcome submissions with student collaborators.

Please submit proposals of approximately 300 words under the section “Proposals: COVID-19, Online Instruction, and Open Educational Resources” here: We are accepting proposals until March 15, 2021.

The deadline for full submissions, which will undergo blind peer review, will be May 31, 2021
