The Brookes eJournal of Learning and Teaching is a peer-reviewed journal which aims to:
Promote, enhance and disseminate research, good practice, development and innovation in all aspects of learning, teaching and assessment in Higher Education to its primary audience which includes teachers, support staff, researchers, and those who make or influence policy and practice, within the university and externally.
Encourage greater understanding, dissemination, collaboration and evidence-based practice across the university and externally. BeJLT is designed to have maximum impact through being freely available on-line, fully archived and peer-reviewed.
BeJLT is divided into five sections:
Editorial, Academic Papers, Practice Papers, Research Notes and Reports, School Developments and Perspectives.
- The Editorial addresses items of contemporary interest and provides an introduction to the articles in the current issue.
- For the Academic Papers section, BeJLT invites full-length manuscripts (normally between 4000 and 6000 words) from all disciplines and subject areas. These papers will be subject to peer review. Subjects covered include the broad areas of policy, strategy, curriculum, learning and teaching, assessment, resources, and quality enhancement. Both conceptual and empirical approaches are welcome. Manuscripts may take the form of research papers, case studies, literature reviews, critical evaluations, new methodologies and action research. Purely descriptive accounts may be more appropriate for other sections of the journal.
- The Practice Papers section encourages shorter contributions (normally between 2000 and 3000 words). In particular, it encourages reflection on, and critical review of current practice with a view to sharing experiences, enhancing quality and promoting professional standards.
- Research Notes and Reports will include shorter reports and commentaries.
- School Developments will include accounts ( normally 1500 words ) of Learning and Teaching developments in the Schools at Brookes
- The Perspectives section offers a platform ( normally 1000 to 1500 words ) for contributors to give an account of their experience of, or to express views on, a particular issue or development in Higher Education, including those raised in earlier issues of BeJLT. As such, it can inform or stimulate further research or development.
