Gateway Papers is a peer-reviewed journal that reflects critically on learning and teaching in the changing contexts of education. These contexts include, but are not limited to, higher education, colleges, prisons, community settings and schools. We are interested in developing work that is both critical in analysis and practitioner-focused, developmental and cooperative. The journal offers space to reconsider issues of professional, lifelong and workplace learning, including critiques and theoretical analyses.
The journal invites students, staff and practitioners to explore their pedagogic and education practices in the light of changes in their institutions, national education policies, the strategies of international agencies and developments associated with the ‘knowledge economy’. The journal is interdisciplinary in scope.
The aims of the journal are:
In our previous call, we noted that Covid-19 has recalibrated academic experiences of their work, cultures and institutions. We invited 500-word responses about how Covid-19 has changed our definitions, theorising and practices of our work.
Now, as we move through the pandemic experience of learning, teaching, researching and providing professional services, we are considering the idea and potential futures of higher education and our universities. We are considering how the pandemic has affected our identities, our bodies and psychologies, our practices and cultures, the structures of the institutions in which we work, and how we negotiate and implement our values. We are considering our relationships, the infrastructures we require to work effectively, the information and data that supports our work, governance and regulatory structures that are imposed upon us, and the policies and strategies that define our labour.
Please contact the editors to discuss your contribution, as appropriate.
Note that this is an open call, so there is no closing date, and we will publish on-demand. Shorter pieces will receive a light-touch review, whereas full papers will be subject to double-blind peer review.
