The Korean Home Economics Education Association (KHEEA) has published a professional journal since 1989. Originally called the Journal of the Korean Home Economics Education Association, it is now the Journal of Home Economics Education Research (JHEER). This recent name change reflects the association’s vision of accommodating home economics education-related research from a broader and more global, international context. JHEER is thus positioned as a venue for global collaboration and interchange to gain deeper insights into home economics education.
Education is one of several viable career paths for communicating home economics with other venues including government and public service, business and industry, media, nongovernment and nonprofit organizations, and human services. Home economics education involves teaching home economics to non-home economists including school children, college and university students, and adults within the general public. This education helps people learn about home economics and the powerful role it can play in their lives. Through home economics education, people can gain knowledge, clarify values, and take inspired action.
The JHEER publishes original, innovative, and interdisciplinary articles that cover diverse issues in home economics education. The journal’s target readers include educators, researchers, administrators, and policy specialists who are involved in home economics education in diverse academic and community settings. The journal welcomes manuscripts that present research (quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods), theoretical and conceptual statements, philosophical arguments, program evaluations, curriculum development and assessments, reviews, and case studies with clearly articulated implications for research, policymaking, and/or educational practice.
To promote the renamed journal and its re-envisioned focus, the Editorial Board is publishing a special issue on Future Directions of Home Economics Education, which concerns where home economics education can or should go in the future. What research, theoretical innovations, conceptualizations, curricular, policy, and practice innovations are available or required to move home economics education in new directions? Respecting the intended audience of the journal (educators, researchers, administrators, and policy specialists), contributors are invited to submit articles related to the following topics or related ideas:
- lessons learned from teaching home economics during the global pandemic (COVID)
- pedagogical and curricular home economics education innovations
- theoretical or conceptual home economics education innovations
- home economics education philosophy
- home economics education for critical, transformative, and emancipatory learning
- home economics education and home economics literacy
- home economics education leadership
- home economics education curricular or program evaluations with insights into future directions
- home economics education’s policy role and presence relative to individual and family well-being, wellness, and quality of life
- papers about perennial issues normally addressed by home economics education with insights into how the research/study moves this education in new directions (e.g., housing and shelter, protection and security, food security, nutrition and health status, textiles and clothing, design and furnishings, child care, youth development, generational issues, family relations and dynamics, resource management, and consumer behaviour, policy, finances, and sustainability).
For this special issue, the JHEER welcomes contributions from both KHEEA members and nonmembers in home economics education and related disciplines.
