Editorial: The Changing Face of Education





On behalf of the Editorial Board, it gives me great pleasure to introduce the inaugural issue of the Warwick Journal of Education – Transforming Teaching (WJETT). At time of writing, education at all levels in the United Kingdom faces a host of challenges; but with challenge comes change, and it is such change that draws the focus of this journal. WJETT has been established in order to capture the work that goes on, at all levels and across all kinds of educational institutions, in transforming teaching and learning to address these various challenges, in pursuit of high quality outcomes for all learners.
