About This Journal

The Journal of Case Learning and Exceptional Learners (JCLEL) is an open-access, double-blind, peer-reviewed online journal that publishes case studies and case study learning research and resources. JCLEL is published biannually in the fall and spring with the potential for special issue editions in the summer.

JCLEL features case studies that special education faculty to utilize in higher education settings can utilize in preparing teacher candidates. JCLEL also features case studies of K-12 grade students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and moderate to extensive support needs disabilities. JCLEL aims to represent the experiences, learning challenges, and pragmatic responses of individuals with a broad variety of living and learning needs. JCLEL encourages early career special education faculty members and doctoral students in the related fields.

This journal is the result of a collaboration between Georgia Southern University, Illinois State Unversity, and Appalachian State University and is published in partnership with Digital Commons@Georgia Southern.
