The editors seek articles (6,000-10,000 words); methods and texts essays (3,000 to 5,000 words); photo-essays, and contributions to our new “Teaching Failures” section (2,500-5,000) for the forthcoming issue of Transformations. Submissions should explore strategies for teaching in the classroom and in non-traditional spaces. We welcome jargon-free essays from all disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives.

Articles:

Articles should explore teaching in ways that emphasize students’ perspectives and classroom dynamics. Authors should engage relevant scholarly sources and theories.

Methods and Texts:

Methods and texts essays should analyze specific teaching strategies, tools, and/or resources.

Photo-Essays:

Photo-essays should include no more than 12 images (500 ppi, jpg or .tiff files). An interpretative statement that provides context for the images (300-500 words) and captions of 50 words or less should also be included. Note that images can be reproduced in black-and-white only. Photo reproduction rights should be secured prior to submission.

Teaching Failures:

Teaching Failures essays should focus on a particularly challenging classroom experience, a struggle with a specific teaching resource, or failure/success as related to pedagogical practice. More broadly, authors might explore the ways in which educational institutions and institutional structures define and engage failure and/or success (for example, academic silos, issues relating to academic freedom, work cultures, governance, etc.)
