The Open Access Journal focuses on scholarship across all forms of education and pedagogy, containing a strong video/visual component. The video/visual component must be integrated – either as a methodology, an innovation in terms of the way data were collected or utilised for pedagogical purposes, a philosophical contribution, or in terms of the results that are shown.
Our ambition, with the aid of Scopus methodologies, is to bolster the impact, performance, rank and reputation of VJEP as the first-ever scholarly journal of its kind.
Recently appointed VJEP Editor-in-Chief – Prof E. Jayne White – and her team of co-Editors (including our very own Dr David Rousell and special issue co-Editor Sophie Fenton) invite scholarly visual/video contributions and citations from AVP members, institutional partners, PESA Agora affiliates and partner organisations over the months ahead. We are currently particularly interested in video papers around pedagogical responses to COVID.
We welcome inquiries across all aspects of education and pedagogy – in their broadest sense. AVP also has a number of related activities planned for later this year – not least a Virtual Reality Seminar, Podcasts and Pedagogical Provocations.
