Search for Guest Editors for JMBE’s 2022 Themed Issue: Opportunities and Challenges of Online Instruction-- Blurring the Lines Between Online and On-site Teaching and Learning
Although online instruction is an established practice, the educational shift that followed the start of the COVID-19 pandemic exposed most instructors worldwide to some version of remote instruction, popularizing this practice. The next themed issue of the Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education will explore the wealth of practices that are encompassed by online instruction. We envision that the issue will focus on topics such as, but not limited to: best practices for instructional methods that incorporate an online component (e.g., hybrid, Hyflex, flipped classroom, fully virtual), lessons learned that apply to remote learning as we move forward in a post-COVID world, inclusiveness in the online classroom, novel approaches to achieve laboratory learning outcomes in the online environment, and online and blended learning models for high-impact practices like course-based undergraduate research and service learning.
