Special Issue 2018: Call for Submissions

The IAFOR Journal of Education is calling for submissions for a special issue on “Teacher Education: Challenges and Opportunities”, with a target publication date of September 30, 2018.

Guest Editor: Dr Yvonne Masters, University of New England, Australia
Submission deadline: March 1, 2018

The aim of this special issue is to discuss teacher education and its opportunities and challenges. In the current accountability climate, where everything is expected to be measurable, the words evidence and impact are at the forefront in new policies, all in the pursuit of quality teachers. The quality imperative has raised questions in many areas of teacher education: who is selected for teacher education courses? Can prior experience be recognised? What capstone assessment will measure compliance with standards? What is good evidence? These are only a few of the questions surrounding a much contested education arena.

We are calling on anyone who is working and/or researching within the teacher education field to submit an article to this special issue. We welcome articles about one of the issues mentioned above or about any other topic within the wider field. Our aim is to publish about teacher education around the globe, highlighting similarities and differences in multiple countries.

We encourage you to submit your manuscript (as a Word file) via the manuscript submission form on the journal website. Please include “Special Issue” at the beginning of your article title in the submission form and article file. Submissions open on October 1, 2017. Please read the information on the journal homepage and follow the journal’s Author Guidelines before submitting your paper.

We look forward to receiving your submissions. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the special issue Guest Editor, Dr Yvonne Masters (yfmasters@gmail.com), or the IAFOR Publications Team (publications@iafor.org).
