Publishing Pedagogical Research: Strategies for those who wish to publish about Teaching and Learning
Being an academic involves not only publishing in one’s own discipline, but for those with a particular interest in teaching, it increasingly means publishing about teaching and learning. The range of things on which one can publish is very extensive, but there is a very long tail in the higher education literature and getting accepted in some of the higher rated journals demands careful thought and planning.
The focus of the seminar will be on the issues involved in getting published in good outlets. It will encompass issues such as: deciding what it is worth publishing about, how papers in higher education might differ from those in one’s home discipline, what editors are looking for and navigating the publishing process. The aim of the session is to build confidence in pursuing the publication path tempered by a realistic view of what can be achieved.
The presentation will be followed by informal discussions from 14.00 to 15.00
The talk will be given by Professor David Boud from the Work and Learning Research Centre
