Open Access Journals on Teaching and Learning

This is a comprehensive collection of authoritative journals and academic anthologies featuring current scholarship on teaching and learning theories, practices, policies, debates and technologies with a specific focus on higher education. This list has been especially curated to help fellow educators in the humanities and creative arts maintain current awareness in general and disciplinary teaching and learning scholarship. I encourage anyone with suggestions for additional titles to post a link or a title in the comments below, and hope you will continue to engage with this resource as is grows. But for now, I hope you enjoy browsing, searching and sorting through the 30+ publications below.

This is the second post in a series of dynamic collections of peer-reviewed open access research. You can find an expansive list of Open Access Journals in the Arts and Humanities and this link.

Hybrid Pedagogy

Hybrid Pedagogy is an an open-access, peer-reviewed academic journal of learning, teaching, and technology that combines the strands of critical pedagogy and digital pedagogy to arrive at the best social and civil uses for technology and new media in education. It voids valorizing educational technology, but seeks to interrogate and investigate technological tools to determine their most progressive applications and invites you to an ongoing discussion that is networked and participant-driven, to an open peer reviewed journal that is both academic and collective.

Hybrid Pedagogy remains centered on praxis — the blend of theory and practice that develops with experience and reflection. Articles in this journal combine personal experience, current conversations in academia, and a theoretical foundation that presumes the value, strength, and independent thinking of all learners. As such, Hybrid Pedagogy is not ideologically neutral. The journal’s principles can be found not only in its name and in articles like “What is Hybridity?”, but also in the works of critical pedagogues like Paulo Freire and bell hooks.

Education happens everywhere — all the time — and people must be empowered to learn and teach throughout their lives. And because technology appears everywhere and is incorporated in all aspects of our lives, from the device you’re using to read this to the designed textiles you’re wearing, people must also be empowered to conscientiously evaluate the role of technology in their learning and teaching. Thus, Hybrid Pedagogy exists to explore those connections: the contact points and interconnectedness of learning, teaching, and technology in our lives. Our work is the work of advocacy — advocating for teachers, advocating for marginalized voices in education, but first and foremost advocating for students and learners.

Digital Humanities Pedagogy: Practices, Principles and Politics

Academic institutions are starting to recognize the growing public interest in digital humanities research, and there is an increasing demand from students for formal training in its methods. Despite the pressure on practitioners to develop innovative courses, scholarship in this area has tended to focus on research methods, theories and results rather than critical pedagogy and the actual practice of teaching.

The essays in this collection offer a timely intervention in digital humanities scholarship, bringing together established and emerging scholars from a variety of humanities disciplines across the world. The first section offers views on the practical realities of teaching digital humanities at undergraduate and graduate levels, presenting case studies and snapshots of the authors’ experiences alongside models for future courses and reflections on pedagogical successes and failures. The next section proposes strategies for teaching foundational digital humanities methods across a variety of scholarly disciplines, and the book concludes with wider debates about the place of digital humanities in the academy, from the field’s cultural assumptions and social obligations to its political visions.

Digital Humanities Pedagogy broadens the ways in which both scholars and practitioners can think about this emerging discipline, ensuring its ongoing development, vitality and long-term sustainability.

This lack of well-developed theoretical framings and of articulated theoretical constructs and ideas, provides an avenue for initiating useful and productive scientific discussion on a range of issues. These include internal inconsistencies, phenomena which appear inconsistent with the predictions derived from the corresponding theoretical framework and available empirical evidence, indicating flaws in underlying assumptions or premises ·    Studies seeking to make connections between previously unconnected established lines of research so as to integrate different theoretical frameworks ·    Studies using an innovative research methodology that offers a different perspective on how to conceptualise and pursue certain research questions.

Mountain Rise

Mountain Rise is particularly interestednin publishing articles that fit our mission to provide relevant and cutting edge SOTL to an international audience in higher education. There are several general SOTL journals out there, and we believe that we stand apart because of our emphasis on pushing the envelope in terms of form, content, and method for SOTL. Although we accept good SOTL of any kind, we particularly welcome SOTL that challenges our conventional ideas of scholarship in teaching and learning.Articles are to focus upon research in any area of pedagogy or focus upon current issues in teaching & learning and the practical implications of that research for teaching and learning in higher education. Some possible directions include but are not limited to the following:Explain a particular problem in teaching and/or the learning experience and, based upon research, provide a solution with justification and results and how those results are to be understoodPresent a personal case study or pedagogical problem, how and why it was researched as it was, the results, and the evaluation of those results with suggestions for further changesExplain the perspectives and expectations of students today on teaching & learning based upon measured investigation, interviews, etc. and what are their reasons and the implications of those perspectives for faculty

The Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning (IJPBL) publishes relevant, interesting, and challenging peer-reviewed articles of research, analysis, or promising practice related to all aspects of implementing problem-based learning (PBL) in K–12 and post-secondary classrooms. For over 40 years, researchers have lacked an outlet for sharing their findings with other educators and scholars who were interested in problem-based learning (PBL) as a pedagogical method. In the past, when educational journals published problem-based learning research, they did so with a single focus on the use of PBL in the specific discipline they represented. The Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning (IJPBL) remedies this problem by offering a forum for all PBL research across disciplines. This scholarly journal publishes relevant information about problem-based learning pedagogy and is the first, and only, journal of its kind.

Freire Project | Taboo

Taboo: The Journal of Culture and Education is an academic forum for the study of teaching and pedagogy that focuses on the relationship between education and its socio-cultural context. Drawing upon a variety of contextualizing disciplines including cultural studies, curriculum theorizing, feminist studies, the social foundations of education, critical pedagogy, multi/interculturalism, queer theory, and symbolic interactionism, Taboo is grounded on the notion of “radical contextualization.” The journal encourages papers from a wide range of contributors who work within these general areas. As its title suggests, Taboo seeks compelling and controversial submissions.

Papers representing all aspects of teaching and academic leadership are welcomed including reflections, reviews of research, guidelines for effective practice, and research-based suggestions for improving teaching, student learning, and leadership.
