Evolving Pedagogy

An Electronic Journal of Evolving Pedagogy

Evolving Pedagogy fosters pedagogical development that enhances learning. This journal publishes both research and  practice-based  papers that have a sound theoretical or practical grounding (e.g. engaging methods used in learning).

All papers should aim to develop pedagogical and andragogical understanding following educational research traditions, and encourage innovation in facilitating learning at any educational level as well as within the world of work.  Therefore, we welcome submissions from teachers, researchers, students, academics and specialist trainers alike.

Both research and practice-based papers should be original contributions (i.e. not previously published), not exceed 8000 words and arguments should be supported by the relevant literature. All manuscripts are submitted to double blind review process (approx. 4 weeks), 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
