CALL FOR PAPERS

The BC Publication Committee invites submissions for Volume 7, August 2021. There will be continued emphasis on Student Success: A National Focus. However, the theme for Volume 7 is the following:

Education 2020: The Great Online Pivot & the Intersection of Education and Race

During the season of the Great Online Pivot, the world united due to a maelstrom of upending occurrences. Within the realm of education, throngs of educators, heretofore technology tentative neophytes and masterful early embracers, along with students, rapidly landed in the same space of uncertainty. There was enmasse shift to emergency online teaching and learning for an undetermined period of time.

Voices in Education is keen to learn about the application of pedagogical theory, practice, and research for teaching and learning that guided educators during this time. The policy challenges that confronted administrators in their quest to ensure quality and equitable decision making is also of interest. As are the social and sociology impacts of this rapid and prolonged experience on educators, students and the community, many of whom found themselves thrust into educative roles.

Globally the pandemic then met with an arguably unprecedented expansion of resistance to institutional racism. Education is not immune to this intersection. School breakfast programmes, Eurocentric curricula as a staple, and inequitable online access are often associated with racial disparity. Bermuda’s streets also filled with protests and platforms of inequity that included calls for African Studies in the Public School System and at Bermuda College.

In this edition, Voices in Education would like to acknowledge these two events and to consider their synchronous occurrence as an opportunity to explore potential intersections, both internationally and locally.
