Journal of Computing in Higher Education (JCHE) contributes to our understanding of the design, development, and implementation of instructional processes and technologies in higher education. JCHE publishes original research, literature reviews, implementation and evaluation studies, and theoretical, conceptual, and policy papers that provide perspectives on instructional technology’s role in improving access, affordability, and outcomes of postsecondary education. Priority is given to well-documented original papers that demonstrate a strong grounding in learning theory and/or rigorous educational research design.

  • Call for Papers: Replication Research in Higher Education and Instructional Technology

    This special issue/series seeks high-quality manuscripts on replication studies. Articles may include, but are not limited to replication studies in higher education involving instructional technology. These replication studies should demonstrate a strong grounding in learning and instructional theory and rigorous educational research design, in addition to established guidelines and frameworks for designing the replication study.

  • Special Issue Call for Papers: From Learning Analytics to Institutional Learning Ecosystems

    What kind of model should institutions of higher education (IHEs) use as they look to utilize information drawn from the learning activities conducted with digital platforms for systemic improvement?  Among the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic is the realization that instructional support technology can be used on a massive scale when needed.  Platform-based teaching provides options for IHEs to respond to a range of needs, to be resilient in the face of other disasters and disruptions that may occur in the future.  Platforms can also allow an IHE to extend its reach to new communities.  The phrase institutional learning ecosystems borrows concepts from organizational learning to advance a broad view of how an organization connects to its stakeholders.  The ecosystem framing is a contemporary approach used with communities and complex organizations—terms that couple apply to IHEs—that highlights emergent, adaptive, and responsive approaches (Wang, 2021).
