Call for Special Issue: A 2025 Vision for Technology and Teacher Education

 Guest editors: Significant evidence exists of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic (and other recent events) on teacher education. For instance, the pandemic highlighted problems and gaps in teacher preparation (i.e., online education), it showcased strengths in teacher educators’ responding to a changing world (i.e., caring pedagogy), and it revealed opportunities for continued growth and evolution in the field.

This special issue of the Journal of Technology and Teacher Education will be a collection of peer-reviewed visionary thought pieces addressing the future of teacher education. Authors will be asked to address three related questions tied to teacher education in 2025.

  1. Given everything we have seen over the past few years as a result of COVID-19 (and other events), what is one key goal for teacher education to achieve by 2025?
  2. What factors are likely to enable or prevent achievement of this goal?
  3. If technology is not directly related to the goal, how do you envision the role of technology in reaching this goal?

Please note: Authors must address or focus on one specific area that responds to a challenge, strength, or opportunity in the field of teacher education. Also, note that these thought pieces should be based in both theory and research; however, the goal is not to present an empirical study.
