Welcome to the Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice (JUTLP)

JUTLP is a peer-reviewed journal publishing papers that add significantly to the body of knowledge describing effective and innovative teaching and learning practice in the higher education environment. The Journal aims to provide a forum for educational practitioners in a wide range of disciplines to communicate their teaching and learning outcomes in a scholarly way. Its purpose is to bridge the gap between journals covering purely academic research and more pragmatic articles and opinions published elsewhere. The Journal is indexed by Scopus (Q2, Education) and Web of Science ESCI (Q2, Education) and listed with the EBSCO database. ISSN: 1449-9789.

The Journal has no article processing charges.
