CALL FOR PAPERS / PARTICIPATION
Call for case studies
The Art Design Media Subject Centre invites you to submit a case study describing, reflecting upon and evaluating an initiative that you have introduced in your 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 approximately 2,000 words long, written in narrative style using visuals where appropriate. If you are including photographs please ensure that you have acquired all relevant permissions including student consent.
Case studies will be reviewed by the ADM-HEA team and evaluated for their relevance to the subject community, transferability and innovation. Successful case studies will be published in Networks, our online magazine. Authors will receive a £300 fee.
We are currently working on the Autumn issue of Networks (15) and it should be published online shortly. Once it is published you will be notified via the weekly bulletin and if you are on our mailing list, you will also be sent a direct link.
