We are happy to announce that our NIE journal “Pedagogies: An International Journal” is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year!
The journal was first published in 2006 with Founding Editor Professor Allan Luke at its helm. Professor Luke, then Dean of NIE’s Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice (CRPP), wrote that the aim of “Pedagogies” was to push the boundaries of theory and research in classrooms. Although studies in classrooms are often taken for granted, they are at the heart of significant innovations in education.
Following Prof Luke’s departure from CRPP, he was succeeded by Associate Professor Anneliese Kramer-Dahl and then later by Associate Professor Lee Yew Jin in 2010. Associate Professor Rita Elaine Silver came on board when Assoc Prof Kramer-Dahl retired in 2013. The current Editors note that while it is always challenging to grow a new journal, they have been especially pleased to see the expanding international readership as well as submissions from around the globe. They both agree that it is an honour to work on the journal and are excited to push “Pedagogies” to greater heights.
To mark this special year, the Editors have chosen some of the journal’s top articles for a special issue. “We feel that they best reflect the wide range of interesting articles that we have enjoyed reading over the years,” Assoc Prof Lee Yew Jin shares. “They were studies that made us stop and think about our work as teacher educators.” Taylor & Francis has published the Anniversary Virtual Special Issue and made the 15 articles free to access till the end of this year.
