Examples of the kind of papers we publish

  • Papers which describe the collection and interpretation of data concerning the design or use of an educational approach;
  • Papers which describe the application of principled methods, theory or tools to the design, development and/or implementation of an educational approach;
  • Organisational, management or policy initiatives in the area of educational design, development and implementation;
  • Large case studies of local experiences where an educational approach has been fully implemented for over at least one year;
