In May 2020, we conceived the Cleveland Teaching Collaborative as a network of educators across disciplines and teaching grade levels. Our first cohort of authors joined us as we reflected on emergency remote learning that took place March-May 2020 and planned for an uncertain coming year.  Their essays provided the foundation for critical conversations about pedagogy, accessibility, technology, social/emotional needs, and the challenges of meeting students where they are. 

With a return to in-person learning at CSU and area schools, this fall is the time for reflection on the last year of our academic lives and how our experiences during the pandemic have changed, challenged, and charted our teaching. We are ready to continue the conversation with a fourth cohort of authors and the ways that new platforms, teaching strategies, and course materials have impacted their teaching practices and how they will bring these experiences with them moving forward. Applicants for this cohort may pitch reflections, case studies, podcasts, and other multi-modal submissions from any grade level or context. We especially encourage submissions from educators in Northeast Ohio, but we will consider other geographic areas. You may also submit pitches for

In short, we seek 15-20 essays (1000-1500 words), podcasts (10-15 minutes per episode), or pitch an equivalent submission type that best suits you from educators in Northeast Ohio. Each submission should be a case study of an assignment, project, entire course, or experience. Authors are encouraged to be creative with content and format. These case studies will contribute to campus and community-wide discussions about best practices for teaching and learning in Cleveland.

Examples of past case study formats include formal academic case study, digital diary, podcast, and an instructional support digital showcase. Feel free to get creative in sharing your experience!
