Aims and scope
The Newport CELT Journal aims to publish original articles relating to all aspects of pedagogic practice and research in the Higher Education sector in its broadest context. Submitted articles may commonly fall into one or more of the following themes:
- Teaching Practice – articles from lecturers that detail existing examples of best teaching practice.
- Learning Insights – reflective articles from learners on their learning experiences in its broadest sense in Higher Education. Learners may be undergraduate or postgraduate students, or academic professionals.
- Development and Innovation – articles that examine the conception, development, and/or deployment of new or updated learning and teaching approaches, methods, techniques, resources, and/or practices, whether or not ultimately successful. This may also extend to new forms of assessment, modules, courses and awards.
- Pedagogic Research – studies that are grounded in research literature and employ a research methodology.
- (Re)Views – articles that undertake a review of a particular topic (normally with an extensive literature survey), book, conference or other event. Or articles that provide a new view or personal perspective on a given issue.
Framework Issues – articles that relate to frameworks within which curricula are delivered. This may relate to Departmental, School/Faculty, or Institutional structure and support mechanisms, academic workloads, funding issues, etc.
Articles may be of any length from ‘Short Notes’ (up to c. 1000 words) to ‘Papers’ (c. 1000-10,000 words). Upon acceptance papers will be published rapidly online, but will also appear in a printed volume at the end of each calendar year.
A very broad range of topics may be covered in the journal, including assessment techniques, technology enhanced learning, interdisciplinary studies, education for sustainable development and global citizenship, aspects of community education, to name but a few.
