Teaching Philosophy


Special Issue: Teaching in a Time of Crisis
Volume 43, Issue 4 - December 2020


  • Information for Authors
  • Teaching Philosophy is soliciting original papers for a special issue on teaching philosophy during a time of crisis. The focus is broadly construed to include the benefits and problems of online teaching, course restructuring challenges, new or different assigned readings, new testing requirements, evaluation of student performance and participation, discussions with students about their concerns, and other relevant issues.

    We anticipate that final articles will run between 7,000-10,000 words, including an abstract of no more than 150 words. Submissions should be prepared for anonymous review. While not required for review of manuscript submissions, final drafts must follow The Chicago Manual of Style guidelines.

    Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

    • Pedagogical research that can inform the creation of new or restructured philosophy courses, particularly for alternative course delivery
    • Best practices for teaching online or in hybrid formats that can be applied in the philosophy classroom
    • Ways to teach about the coronavirus pandemic or other crises in the philosophy classroom, including potential readings or assignments
    • Methods for adapting philosophy courses during a term in response to world events
    • Techniques for ensuring respectful discussion of events impacting students in philosophy classes
    • Curricular innovations, including novel philosophy courses, to address the new challenges we face

    Manuscripts can be submitted online at https://mc04.manuscriptcentral.com/teachingphilosophy.

    Inquiries should be directed to the editor, Mara Harrell, at [email protected].
