Contribute to Networks
We are interested in receiving; news items; evaluative event reports; proposals for feature articles and case studies; project reports and resource reviews. Further details on each of these is provided below.
We now publish news items on the networkADM news blog rather than in Networks. We welcome items that relate to teaching and learning in art, design or media higher education. Examples could include the launch of a new publication or sector network, the development of a special interest group, a call for participation, a forthcoming event, etc. News items can be up to 500 words in length. Please submit items to: email@example.com
We welcome evaluative reports on events you have attended in the UK or overseas. We would be particularly pleased to receive reports that relate specifically to teaching and learning in art, design and media higher education, but also reports that evaluate events from a disciplinary perspective. Bear in mind that these items should be of broad interest to colleagues outside of your own institution and provide an insight into debates raised and developments presented for colleagues who were unable to attend.
Event reports should be up to 1,000 in length. Remember to include your name and institution, the title of the event, venue, date and any links to further information. It would also be helpful if you could include an image, JPEG format at 300dpi quality or higher.
Networks feature articles take an in-depth look at issues impacting on art / design / media (including journalism, cultural studies and art and design history) teaching and learning in higher education. Choose a topic that relates to your own experience or your own pedagogic research. Some very general ideas for topics include; regional or national policy agendas and initiatives; departmental and institutional strategies; new technological developments and their relationship to art / design / media HE.
Feature articles should be approximately 2,000-3,000 words long. A fee of £300 is payable to authors of those features accepted for publication.
Before writing your feature article please send a short (100 words approx) abstract including an outline of the topic, purpose and intended audience. Email this along with your job title and department, institution, address and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. If this proposal is accepted we will work with you to determine deadlines, etc. If the article has been previously published, please give full details of publication. For further guidelines
Networks case studies describe, reflect upon and evaluate initiatives that art, design and media tutors and lecturers have introduced in their own teaching practice. Your case study will enable colleagues in art / design / media (including journalism, cultural studies and art and design history) higher education to benefit from your experience and, where appropriate, transfer elements to their own teaching practice.
The case study should be 2,000 - 3,000 words long, written in narrative style using visuals where appropriate. A fee of £300 is payable to authors of those case studies accepted for publication.
Before writing your complete case study please send a short (100 words approx) abstract including an outline of the topic, purpose and intended audience. Email this along with your job title and department, institution, address and telephone number to email@example.com For further guidelines
Perhaps you have been engaged in a pedagogic research and development project that would be of interest and that you would like to share with colleagues in the sector? We would like to help you disseminate your findings in an evaluative project report. Reports may also include calls for participation, a search for potential collaborators, or requests for feedback. Reports may also provide an opportunity to point readers to more detailed research reports or published findings. We welcome project reports of up 2,000 words.
Networks publishes resource (usually book) reviews that have been written by colleagues who share their experiences and recommendations, and describe their use of various learning resources in the context of art, design and media higher education. Reviews should be 800 -1,200 words. We usually have a few resources available for review that we can send you. If you are interested in reviewing one of these please email us and let us know; or feel free to suggest a resource that you think may be of interest to other readers. For a list of resources currently available for review, please see the networkADM news blog On acceptance of your review we will send you £50 worth of book tokens and you are free to keep any review copy that we send to you.
