Aims and scope
The Warwick Journal of Education – Transforming Teaching aims to bring together educational research and practice in order to explore innovative, creative and evidence-informed pedagogies. It seeks to publish scholarly work that critically examines the values, theories, approaches and practices of education and in ways which remain accessible to a non-academic audience. WJETT offers a platform for the dissemination of good practice, offering opportunities for teachers and senior leaders to share their work, to document their investigations into teaching, learning and assessment, and to critically reflect upon their practice and identity as educators.
The term “teaching” is taken in its broadest sense, encompassing a variety of contexts, roles and practices. Education occurs not only in schools, colleges and universities, but also nurseries, workplaces, pupil referral units, faith organisations and professional and subject associations. It is created and developed by diverse communities of teachers, teaching assistants, lecturers, lab technicians, librarians, mentors and students. As such, WJETT invites contributions from all those working within any sector of education and from all educational communities.
We encourage methodological diversity, and welcome submissions from all disciplines, research traditions, and perspectives. This includes (but is not limited to) practitioner research; large-scale, whole-school or institutional initiatives; case studies; critical reflections, as well as issues relating to educational leadership, professional development and teacher education.
WJETT focuses upon transforming teaching, and contributions should clearly identify an aspect of transformation, either by evidencing positive change, exploring the processes of change, or viewing transformation of practice through a theoretical, critical or reflective lens.
WJETT publishes annually, free of charge via Open Access and is available for free on its website. All work in the journal is published under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike License, which permits use and redistribution of the work provided that the original author and source are credited, the work is not used for commercial purposes and that any derivative works are made available under the same license terms.
WJETT’s policy is that all research articles and literature reviews should be peer-reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers in a double-blind process. Other articles (typically conversations / interviews or reflective / perspective pieces) do not formally require peer review, but will typically be reviewed by a single reviewer and overseen by a member of the Editorial Board.
