Invitation to Publish in Teaching Innovation Projects Journal
For the first time ever, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows from 11 universities across Canada are invited to contribute to an exciting and career-enhancing publication, the Teaching Innovation Projects (TIPS) journal.
TIPS is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal housed at Western University’s Teaching Support Centre. It publishes articles produced by graduate students and post-doctoral fellows that describe the scholarly and pedagogical foundations for workshops on a variety of pressing topics in higher education. In just one year, the 20 articles housed in TIPS have been downloaded over 6500 times by individual users across Canada and as far away as Singapore, Australia, and Sweden. Twelve of the contributing authors have been directly contacted by educational developers and faculty members interested in mounting their workshops at institutions around the globe.
In 2013, the editors of TIPS will be releasing a National Special Issue, published to coincide with the Society for Teaching & Learning in Higher Education conference in June. We are inviting you to contribute to this exciting venture.
What’s in it for you?
This is a unique opportunity for you to translate the significant time and effort that you have invested in your professional development into a scholarly publication that will enhance your teaching dossier, inform your teaching practice, and act as a form of networking, connecting you to a community of like-minded practitioners.
