CBE-LSE Calls for Abstracts for Special Issue on Community College Biology Education Research
Almost half of undergraduate students in the sciences pursue studies in community colleges (CCs), including the majority of first-generation college-going students and students from populations underserved in the sciences. However, the assets, innovations, and approaches of community college biology education have been understudied. Additionally, community college students and instructors are often overlooked in biology education research that aspires to draw generalizable conclusions. To bring attention to community college biology education and encourage greater attention to these students and instructors, CBE – Life Sciences Education (LSE; http://www.lifescied.org/) will publish a special issue in 2022 highlighting research articles, essays, and features that amplify the voices of community college students, instructors, researchers, and authors. By highlighting community college biology education research, we hope to foster new lines of inquiry, new collaborations, and new insights to support increased understanding of the community college biology education context. We welcome authors at all phases of their career, with varying levels of biology education research experience, in a variety of professional positions and institutional contexts, and from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
