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 fourth 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 full papers of typically 5000-7000 words, short papers, posters (with audio commentary) 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.
