Teaching and Learning Mathematics Online Second Edition Call for Proposals

  • Proposal Submission Deadline: March 31, 2023
  • Editors:
    • James P. Howard, II
    • John F. Beyers


In 2017, the first call for proposals for Teaching and Learning Mathematics Online (TLMO) opened with these words:

Online education has grown to be a major component of the higher education market in both the United States and worldwide.

We had no idea what was to come. In 2020, as the first edition came out, COVID-19 simultaneously changed everything, especially education. Courses had to go online with nearly no notice and teachers used to the classroom, at every level, were suddenly talking to a computer screen.

Today, after three years, it is time to evaluate the lessons learned from this experience. We would like to know what worked and what did not. And we would like to know what can be done better. Accordingly, this is the call for proposals for the second edition of TLMO.

Objectives of the Book

The objective of TLMO is to provide a set of practice standards for educators teaching mathematics and statistics in the online and hybrid environments. The text will present sound methods for delivering mathematical content to students grounded in both the research and practice of mathematics education. It will also present methods and tools for integrating online material to students in the traditional classroom.

We will welcome chapters that focus on empirical research, theoretical frameworks, or detailed case studies showing what works in the classroom. We are also interested chapters that provide content for international education, especially to students in the developing world. That said, we are most interested in chapters that give us lessons learned from the COVID-19 experience and chapters that focus on academic integrity in this setting. As a whole, TLMO should provide a framework for developing, implementing, and teaching online mathematics and statistics courses to students across disciplines and skill levels.

Target Audience

The target audience for TLMO are practicing educators, at the high school, collegiate, and postgraduate level. These educators are familiar with mathematics and statistical instruction, but may be new to the online or hybrid classroom. These educations may also be interested in integrating online instruction in the traditional classroom. In addition to practicing educators, TLMO will also appeal to mathematics education researchers and instructors of other natural sciences who must integrate mathematical and statistical content into online and hybrid courses. The volume will be a handbook of methods and practices for teaching excellence across mathematical courses.

Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit their chapter proposals. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project. This publication is anticipated to be released in 2024.

Proposals should be submitted via a webform. Inquiries are welcome and should be submitted to James P. Howard, II <james.howard@jhu.edu>.

Note: There are no submission or acceptance fees for manuscripts submitted to this book publication. All manuscripts are accepted based on a double-blind peer-review editorial process.
