Current Issue: Volume 6, Issue 2 (2022) Holistic Teaching and Learning

We are pleased to present the 2nd Issue of Volume 6 of the Journal of Research Initiatives sponsored by the College of Education at Fayetteville State University. We were honored to have received sufficient requests for publication to be able to offer three issues for volume 6. We want to sincerely thank the dedicated international scholars who overcame the barriers presented by a global pandemic to share their hard-earned research for the enrichment of the worldwide academic community and students. The increasing number of submissions is indicative of the growing demand for the Journal and the principles of social justice in education upon which it was founded. The second issue focused on the concept of Holistic Teaching and Learning.
Some of the highlights include articles discussing family engagement with digital technology in home and educational settings, faculty members' perspectives in teaching and learning online courses, the incorporation of creative non-formulaic evidence-based writing practices, and an investigation of the experiences leading to a growth mindset of student-athletes. The issue includes the benefits and costs of developmental education at the college level, the limitations of quantitative analysis in disability research, the use of multiple variables in nursing education programs, and a book review on emerging public health perspectives. We want to thank our authors, reviewers, and readers for sharing the research to benefit the academic community, grow knowledge and evolve a global community that prioritizes freedom and social justice principles.
