Journal of Communication Pedagogy

Editor:  Deanna D. Sellnow, University of Central Florida

Associate Editor: Renee Kaufmann, University of Kentucky

Editorial Assistant:  America Edwards, University of Central Florida

The Journal of Communication Pedagogy (JCP) is a peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the Central States Communication Association.  The journal publishes only the highest quality articles that extend communication theory, research, and practice in meaningful ways.  In addition to face-to-face and online classrooms, we seek manuscripts that focus on instructional communication research situated in a variety of contexts such as (but not limited to) health, business/industry, religious, risk/crisis, public relations, journalism, forensics, and nonprofits both within the borders of the United States and beyond them. We are particularly interested in the use of technology (including virtual reality and artificial intelligence) in instruction.  We welcome manuscripts that focus on instructional communication research within the communication discipline and beyond it (e.g., education, agriculture, social work, legal studies, engineering and S.T.E.M., pharmacy, nursing, health sciences).  In sum, we seek manuscripts that examine communication pedagogy as it occurs across subfields in the communication discipline, in disciplines throughout the academy, and in contexts beyond the walls of higher education. 

All manuscripts must adhere to the guidelines of the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association and must not have been published elsewhere or be under review for any other publication.

Call for Papers, Special Section - Machine Teachers in Education, Journal of Communication Pedagogy

The Journal of Communication Pedagogy (JCP) is now accepting manuscripts for Machine Teachers in Education, to be published as part of Volume 4. 

Submissions are due on October 15, 2020. 

Guest Editor: Jihyun Kim, PhD, Nicholson School of Communication and Media, University of Central Florida

With ongoing technology development, it is highly likely that education will begin its new era by incorporating nonhuman agents as a tutor, assistant, advisor, or/and teacher, so-called “machine teachers.” Although human teachers may not be completely replaced by machine, some people argue machines would start assisting and replacing teachers in some areas in near future. In fact, this trend already arrived when an AI (Artificial Intelligence) teaching assistant debuted in at a university in the U.S. 

In this regard, the goal of this special section is to provide a space that synthesizes research studies that explore the role of machine teachers in education. Considering that it is an emerging area, we welcome an exploratory study, pilot study, or preliminary study that provides foundation for this line of research.

Call for Papers, Special issue - Pandemic Pedagogy: Challenges and Opportunities, Journal of Communication Pedagogy

The Journal of Communication Pedagogy (JCP) is now accepting manuscripts for Pandemic Pedagogy: Challenges and Opportunities, to be published as part of Volume 4. 

Submissions are due on October 15, 2020. 

When the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of COVID-19 to be a “public health emergency of international concern,” this global pandemic launched a new normal for how we interact professionally and how we enact instruction. More specifically, the nature of the pandemic forced us to change how we communicate in business, industry, healthcare, interpersonal relationships, families, and classrooms as people around the world were required to work “remotely.” For example, teachers found themselves redesigning lessons to be delivered online, parents/caregivers found themselves playing a primary role in homeschooling, and employers/employees found themselves developing means to communicate/instruct/assess workplace practices online cross the global marketplace.  

This global pandemic exposes an exigence for transforming what effective communication pedagogy looks like across communication contexts. Thus, the goal of this special issue is to be a repository for conceptualizing the challenges for instructional communication as we embrace a new worldview. We invite reflective essays, original research studies, and best practices focused specifically on communication pedagogical challenges posed and addressed during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as lessons learned through research toward building best communication pedagogy best practices going forward.
