What is WJETT? – Dr Deborah Outhwaite and Dr John Thornby
WJETT is a new journal that was first printed in June 2017, from a grant secured by us from the University of Warwick’s Institute of Advanced Teaching and Learning (IATL).
It is intended for an audience of practising teachers and school leaders but submissions should nevertheless be rigorous and presented in the journal’s approved academic style. WJETT welcomes submissions from first-time authors and support will be offered to such individuals in order to help them to present their work in an appropriate way. Articles will be blind peer-reviewed.
WJETT’s official web page can be found at: http://journals.warwick.ac.uk/index.php/wjett/. Here you will find template documents, guidance for authors and copyright information. Please direct all queries to email@example.com.
Call for Papers
The Centre for Teacher Education is proud to announce the call for papers for the second issue of its teaching journal, WJETT – due summer 2018. WJETT is a platform to disseminate best practice and is an opportunity for practising teachers and senior leaders within schools to share their innovations in teaching and learning. This includes (but is not limited to) practitioner research, whole school initiatives and case studies as well as issues relating to educational leadership, professional development and teacher education.
The journal publishes articles in a range of formats (see below) as well as regular columns and content from invited contributors. WJETT is intended as a catalyst to bring the communities of teaching and educational research closer together, with a view to promoting evidence-based practice within classrooms, across our partnership of schools and beyond. These goals are closely aligned to the new Standards for Teachers’ Professional Development: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/standard-for-teachers-professional-development (published July 2016) and the renewed drive for teaching to become a more evidence-informed profession over the last few years, see the work from Education Endowment Fund and the Chartered College of Teaching.
WJETT will publish a variety of content:
Research Articles (5,000 - 8,000 words)
- Empirical Research
- Theoretical Research
- Case Study
Review Articles (1,000 - 5,000 words)
- Literature reviews
