Innovative Practice in Higher Education
This independent online journal (kindly hosted at Staffordshire University) is an opportunity for any colleagues in HE to share their work on delivering teaching and learning.
It is a double blind peer reviewed publication, now into its second volume and is aimed at promoting and sustaining a research culture amongst practitioners in higher education who have an interest in the development of the HE student experience. The journal is inter-disciplinary in approach and accepts papers of 3000-5000 words, posters (with audio commentary) short papers and ‘student voices’ papers (first hand reflective accounts of innovative practices from the learners’ perspective). Topics include: tutoring, research, equality and diversity, internationalisation, classroom innovation, widening participation, assessment and feedback, research-informed teaching, information and digital literacy, teaching and learning processes and a range of other relevant topics.
We are particularly proud of our posters section which is a new way of sharing innovation in teaching and learning. Each poster publication is presented with an accompanying podcast which gives more context and detail to the content.
