Dimension 2022 Special Issue: Focus on Online, Hybrid, and Flipped Language Learning
Co-editors: Dr. Paula Garrett-Rucks (Georgia State University) and Dr. Victoria Russell (Valdosta State University)
This edition will focus on online, hybrid, and flipped language course design, a critical topic during the global pandemic that has propelled an exponential growth in online teaching and learning worldwide. This edition aims to showcase empirical and theoretical papers that focus on effective online, hybrid, and/or flipped language teaching, learning, and/or assessment within meaningful cultural contexts, especially online language courses that incorporate the communicative language teaching approach, ACTFL’s World Readiness Standards (National Standards Collaborative Board, 2015) and Proficiency Guidelines (ACTFL, 2012), as well as high leverage and/or core teaching practices (Glisan & Donato, 2017).
In response to the global pandemic, many educators engaged in emergency remote teaching, which is different than planned, purposeful online teaching that is guided by the principles of sound instructional design. However, most language educators lack professional development (PD) and/or support in online language pedagogy, which includes “knowing how to teach language (language pedagogy), knowing how to teach online (online pedagogy), and knowing how to use educational technologies to deliver online teaching (pedagogy for educational technology)” (Russell & Murphy-Judy, 2020, p. 132). Therefore, articles that focus on PD are also welcome. In addition, we welcome papers from a variety of educational contexts, including K-12 and post-secondary; urban, suburban, and rural; as well as how online language teaching and learning can promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Priority will be given to submissions received by the July 1st, 2021 deadline.
See the submission guidelines.
