Currents in Teaching and Learning is a peer-reviewed electronic journal that fosters exchanges among teacher-scholars across the disciplines. Published twice a year (typically one issue in fall, one in spring), Currents seeks to improve teaching and learning in higher education with short reports on classroom practices as well as longer research, or theoretical articles related to teaching and learning.
As the stress and anxiety of the pandemic year recedes, we take stock of the things that we missed about normal academic life, as well as the silver linings of doing it all remotely.

The Currents in Teaching and Learning Editorial Advisory Board fulfills both editorial and advisory functions, and is made up of Worcester State University faculty members from a variety of disciplines. Currents solicits interested teacher-scholars from a representative range of disciplines and higher-education institutions to form our external Advisory Board.
Currents in Teaching and Learning is now inviting submissions for Volume 14, Issues 1 and 2.
Submissions may take the form of:
All submissions must be original, previously unpublished work and, if based in a particular academic discipline, must explicitly consider their relevance and applicability to other disciplines and classroom settings.
Submissions received after the deadlines will be considered on a rolling basis and for the following issue.

Manuscripts are accepted for consideration with the understanding that they are original material and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
After your manuscript has been accepted, please fill out and submit a Copyright Transfer Form for each author. Authors who wish to use their published manuscript in an edited book or other compilation of articles may do so, but first must obtain written permission from Currents.

Overarching criteria that reviewers will be asked to evaluate for each submission:
Once the editors determine that the manuscript’s format and content are appropriate for the journal, the manuscript is then sent through a blind peer-review process. Names of reviewers will not be released to authors, nor will reviewers know the identities of authors whose work they review. The review process will take 8-10 weeks. Authors will be notified of the recommendations of the review panel and will be provided copies of the reviewers' comments.
