The Journal of Professional Continuing & Online Education is published by The Canadian Association for University Continuing Education (CAUCE), a professional association of deans, directors, senior administrative personnel and practitioners whose professional careers are in university continuing education in Canada.
The Journal is an open access refereed academic and professional journal that uses a continuous publication model. Its readers include scholars, program planners, instructional designers, facilitators, instructors, senior university administrators, and others involved in online, professional and continuing education. Although funded and supported by the Canadian Association for University Continuing Education, publications by international authors are welcomed. Papers may be written in either English or French.
Articles that work within a broad understanding of diverse learners are of particular interest. Papers may focus on learning for credit as well as non-credit learning. Other papers targeting employment needs, online learning, community education, community engagement, personal development, and professional development are also of interest.
Research papers should be articulated in qualitative, quantitative, empirical, or mixed methods approaches to inquiry.
A further aim of the journal is to provide opportunity for authors to engage in scholarly exploration and debate, and to participate in knowledge dissemination of professional practice experiences for the purpose of advancing the broader field.
