This paper introduces the second of two special issues of the International Journal of Mass Emergencies and Disasters focused on teaching and learning. Though there is much recent literature on teaching from other fields, the hazards and disasters community has produced little written scholarship on pedagogy and curriculum design. To address this gap, we produced a call for papers for a special issue and received many submissions. In this paper, we introduce the papers that make up this second special issue on “Curricular Innovations in Hazards and Disaster Studies.” We hope that the papers contained in both special issues will create a sustained dialogue on best practices in teaching about hazards and disasters.
