CALL FOR PAPERS: Special Section: Natural Sciences Education in a COVID-19 World

In mid-March, all of us in K-12 and higher education had to retool our courses under the intense emergency circumstances of a global pandemic due to COVID-19. As we look ahead to the 2020/21 academic year, we begin to imagine how to successfully adapt courses for online delivery, while continuing to offer learning experiences for our students that are as high quality as possible. Similar challenges are also facing those of us working in extension. Building on the success of the 2020 NSE special issue, the 2021 special issue of “Natural Sciences Education in a COVID-19 World” will explore our collective experiences with adapting to COVID-19. We encourage contributions on the following topics:

·         Ideas, approaches and case studies on how to address the need to move courses online (relevant to both K-12 and higher education).
·         Strategies to deal with various administrative challenges in higher education.
·         Issues facing extension specialists in reaching out to farmers.

The overall goal is to share information that will allow institutions to build resilient programs that continue to meet learning outcomes necessary to prepare future generations of land managers and scientists.
