In May 2020, we conceived the Cleveland Teaching Collaborative as 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. 

The new academic year is here and our remote learning practices reflect the deliberate and mindful planning of educators who prepared for teaching and learning in a diverse range of contexts. We are ready to continue the conversation with a second cohort of authors who are trying new platforms, teaching strategies, and materials in their classes. Applicants for this cohort may pitch case studies of remote, hybrid, face-to-face learning from any grade level or context. We especially encourage submissions from educators in Northeast Ohio, but we will consider other geographic areas.

In short, we seek 15-20 essays (1000-1500 words) from educators in Northeast Ohio. Each essay should be a case study of an assignment, project, or entire course. These case studies will contribute to campus and community-wide discussions about best practices for teaching and learning in Cleveland.

Submit a 250-word abstract of your proposed case study when you are ready. Honorariums are available, with priority given to first-time case study authors. Please contact Dr. Shelley Rose ( or Dr. Molly Buckley-Marudas ( with any questions.
