(2022 Theme:  Student Learning: Building on the Past, Innovating for the Future)

IAFOR Journal of Education: Volume 9 – Issue 6 – Studies in Education. Published December 18, 2021

The IAFOR Journal of Education: Studies in Education encourages exploration of significant themes, exceptional programs and promising practice in fields including, but not exclusive to, early childhood, primary and secondary education, higher education, assessment, educational leadership and policy, and sustainable education.

Each year, the issue will have an over-arching theme which can be addressed from a range of contexts. In 2022 we are seeking papers that address the theme of ‘Student Learning: Building on the Past, Innovating for the Future’.

As the world settles into a new normal following the global pandemic, education systems around the globe are looking at different forms of educational provision. It has become imperative to move on and continue with renewed enthusiasm, identifying new ways of working whilst respecting the values of the past. This is as true for the field of education as it is for so many other aspects of life.

The theme for the 2022 Studies in Education issue of the IAFOR Journal of Education is "Student Learning: Building on the Past, Innovating for the Future". Submissions open on 4 July and can come from any field of education. Rather than concentrating on the difficulties of meeting the educational needs of students during the pandemic, we are looking for manuscripts that discuss how education has triumphed in assisting student learning and has even found innovative ways of improving that learning.

The journal covers a variety of topics. Some topics of interest may include:

  • Learning Experiences and Student Learning
  • Teaching Experiences, Pedagogy, Practice & Praxis
  • Assessment Theories & Methodologies
  • Curriculum Design & Development
  • Adult, Lifelong & Distance Learning
