Thinking about blogging?

What is WJETT?

The WJETT blog or Warwick Journal of Education - Transforming Teaching blog is designed to encourage staff and students to disseminate good practice and to engage with their peers on academic cultural critique or areas of research that they find interesting.

With the increased focus on ‘teachers as researchers’ in the sector, many qualified teachers are expected to publish the outcomes of any action research projects they undertake. The WJETT blog can be the first step on your journey towards publishing and enables you to experience publishing and reviewing in a friendly and supportive environment.

Can I write about anything in my blog post?

Yes pretty much. Academic cultural critique (Thomson and Mewburn, 2013) is always a good source of content for academic blogs. This can include (but is not limited to) comments and reflections on funding; higher education policy or academic life. You might also want to consider blogging about:

  • Academic practice (Saper, 2006)
  • Information and/or self-help advice
  • Technical, teaching and careers advice
  • Your research or practice
  • How you’ve undertaken research
  • Impact of research on your practice
  • An area of research/practice that interests you
  • Your experiences/reflections

How long can my blog post be?

Each individual blog post should be no longer than 500 words. Long blocks of text are sometimes hard for readers to digest. Break up your content into shorter paragraphs, bullet points and lists whenever possible. Also include a list of keywords or tags as this makes it easier for Google to find your work.

Do I need to use citations?

No, this is a reflective piece so it does not need to include citations (but you obviously can include them if they are relevant).

Can I include links or images?

We would encourage you to include links to any articles that you have considered whilst writing your blog post. We also welcome the use of images (as long as you have permission to use them) as they can often help to illustrate a point and obviously will not be included in the word limit. Please remember this is a public site so if you want to include images of your students in your classes then you will need permission to do this.

What is the process for submitting a piece of work?

Your blog post should be emailed to me at A.Ball.1@warwick.ac.uk. Once the submission has been reviewed it will either be uploaded at the beginning of the next available week or sent back to you for editing if it requires amendments. You should then send the amended work to me once again and I will then upload it onto the WJETT site.

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 wjett@warwick.ac.uk.

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
  • Book reviews

Conversation (3,000 - 5,000 words)

  • Interviews with academics, policy makers, government, think tanks etc.

Critical Reflection (1,000 - 3,000 words)

  • Reflection on a conference, symposium or workshop
  • Shorter, focused discussion of emerging research
  • Highlights of important research in your field and its significance
  • Personal reflection on practice

This project has been funded by the Institute of Advanced Teaching and Learning at the University of Warwick, and is supported by staff within the university library, please do consider writing for us!

Who will review my blog post?

In the first instance Kate Mawson or Abi Ball will read your blog post. If the number of postings increases beyond what they can reasonably cope with then other academic colleagues in CTE will be asked to read your work. There is no peer review as such we read purely for QA.

Will the reading process be anonymous?

No. Due to the nature of the editing process on the WJETT blog it is not possible to anonymise the reading process, we will know who submitted the post.

Will my work be checked for spelling and grammatical errors?

We are not offering a draft post reading service - if anything really obvious is spotted we will let you know but we publish what you send so do please check your post over before sending.

What is the process for submitting a piece of work?

Your blog post should be emailed to either K.Mawson@warwick.ac.uk or A.Ball.1@warwick.ac.uk. Once the submission has been readd it will either be uploaded at the beginning of the next available week or kept on file for posting in the future, we have a content calendar to try to vary the blog output by theme.

How often will the WJETT blog be updated?

The blog will be updated once a week with a new blog . If we have more than one article per week these will be held in reserve and submitted gradually each week. This ensures that there is regular new content added to the blog.
