The Journal of Higher Education Theory and Practice (JHETP) is accepting papers for a special issue on “Modern Challenges in Education.” The last few years have presented unprecedented challenges – the pandemic, political division, rise in inequality, global conflict – to educators around the world, and these challenges have had a profound impact on education. This special issue aims to highlight the challenges that educators have faced in recent years and the methods that have been implored to overcome these challenges.  Below is a list of some – but not all of the topics – that would be appropriate for the special issue.


  • Effects of learners affected by political violence or environmental disasters
  • What insights can be drawn from research on inequalities (e.g., gender, class, caste, and race) for the field of education and learning?
  • Embedding of sustainable development goals in curriculum/pedagogy/policy
  • How can technology be used to make education accessible to broader society, without creating further inequalities around access, affordability, and in curricula and pedagogy?
  • Impact on other categories of vulnerable learners in education in emergencies contexts, such as the unique risks pandemics pose to girls, and to learners with disabilities.
  • Lessons learned from past public health crises, including Ebola, H1N1, SARS, HIV/AIDS, and others for education responses to COVID-19, future health crises and/or recovery
  • Pandemic preparedness, mitigation, and response in education systems
  • Experiences developing or implementing public health guidelines and policies for education settings amid conflict, crisis, and/or humanitarian emergency
  • Design and implementation of distance education (online, television, radio, paper-based, and other modalities) in emergency contexts and/or for vulnerable or low-resource populations
  • Teaching materials, curricula, and learning materials about public health, disease mitigation, protection, and prevention

JHETP is indexed in Scopus, Cabells, Proquest, EBSCO, Google Scholar, Ulrichs, and Bowker.
