I’m always looking for pedagogical resources, as w
ell as publishing/scholarship opportunities for faculty (and myself) to publish in, and there is a new open-access journal, Prompt. It is, as stated in the editors’ introduction,
a multidisciplinary journal focused specifically on collegiate writing assignments. This journal highlights the pedagogical process of crafting writing assignments and offers contextualized reflections on teaching writing in varied disciplines.
The first issue features writing assignments in cultural anthropology, history, mathematics, and writing studies, and they are encouraging submission of writing assignments across the curriculum. The introduction itself lays the case pretty well for why a journal like this is needed, as an attempt to bring together, in one place, resources for professors across disciplines, but also an opportunity to give an outlet for this kind of work as scholarship.
Of course, there are already a number of “scholarly” Open Access outlets for this kind of work now, such as JiTP, Hybrid Pedagogy, Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities, and Kairos’ Praxis section. One focused on transdisciplinary writing (broadly understood) adds to the growing number of resources and opportunities to promote pedagogy as scholarship.
What resources do you recommend that promote pedagogy as scholarship? Please share in the comments!
