Paedagogia is a scholarly journal devoted to refereed teacher action research conducted by pre-service and current teachers. The journal provides a platform for education professionals to share ideas and collaborate on practice-based research in the pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning. Articles address a range of pedagogical and disciplinary inquiry that run the gamut of schooling experiences and a diversity of learning contexts both domestically and internationally.
The goal of Paedagogia is to encourage teacher candidates and professional educators to exercise their role as producers of knowledge in the contexts of their practice, and to advance student success by sharing their knowledge with the professional communities. Manuscripts are encouraged from education licensure candidates, teachers, administrators, and education professional at all levels, who are engaged in inquiry on pedagogical issues of interest to the education profession.
Established by students of the Education Department at Lake Forest College, Paedagogia contributes to the rigorous culture of inquiry and practical reflection that is the hallmark of the teacher preparation programs at the institution. The Education Department’s objective is to foster a community of critically reflective professionals and encourage a culture of lifelong learning. With this resource, students, alumni, and teachers can stay connected and abreast with new ideas and research on teaching and learning to provide future generations with the best education possible.
