Evolving Pedagogy- Greetings from Finland

An Electronic Journal of Evolving Pedagogy – Greetings from Finland
Editors-in-Chief: Eila Burns, Hannele Torvinen, Outi Niininen
ISSN 2489-2386

Evolving Pedagogy- Greetings from Finland fosters pedagogy development. This journal publishes both articles (these are best described as traditional research papers) as well as practice papers that have a sound practical grounding (e.g. new pedagogy evolving from teaching practice, lessons we as teachers learned from our classrooms etc).

All papers should aim to improve the quality and usability of educational research as well as its impact on teaching practice at any level from play school to adult education as well as on-the job training. Both articles and practice papers should be accessible to the generalist reader and each paper should provide clear take-away value by describing the context of a problem of practical, pedagogical importance as well as offer a contemporary solution.

Our readers are looking for pedagogical innovation and want to share in your pedagogical inspirations; therefore we welcome submissions from teachers, researchers, students, academics and specialist trainers alike.

Both articles and practice papers should be original contributions (i.e. not previously published), not exceed 8000 words and arguments should be supported by the relevant literature. All articles and practice papers are submitted to double blind review process (ca. 4 weeks process), and they will be published immediately after acceptance of the final versions.

For your questions do not hesitate to contact us by emailing to eila.burns@jamk.fi
