Journal History

This journal has been established to bring together a diverse array of articles from academic staff within the University of Central Lancashire. The aims of the journal are to highlight the range and quality of research undertaken within the university and provide a support mechanism for new researchers to engage in pedagogical research. The journal will reflect the differing perspectives and nature of pedagogical research across a multitude of disciplines. Defining pedagogical research is not an easy task, therefore the journal will focus on issues relating to assessment, feedback, innovative teaching practices, student experience and research informed teaching. The journal has a mixture of full papers and abstracts and it is anticipated that these abstracts will be extended into full papers in later editions. Added to this we will include guest papers which reflect the wider concerns of pedagogic research.
