This webinar is designed for all colleagues, whether on an education-focused, research-focused or hybrid, career track who are themselves interested in publishing educational scholarship, who are supporting others in writing, and/or colleagues that are interested in understanding the different foci of a range of scholarship journals.

Over two decades ago, Atkinson (2001) asserted that educational scholarship, or SoTL, should aim to “transform the nature of … society toward our ideals of equality and justice” (p. 1217) while Hutchings et al (2011) suggested that “If students are to be adequately prepared … [institutions] must pay closer attention to the heart of the educational enterprise. … [SoTL] brings powerful new principles and practices … to help point the way (p. 3). However, despite such aspirations, academics trying to publish in the field of SoTL too often merely present examples of ‘good’ teaching of codified knowledge, rather than making a necessary original contribution to the knowledge of education. Concurrently, publishing educational scholarship risks not being seen as a worthwhile use of time and resources, “a fallback route to promotion for people with patchy research records” (Boshier, 2009, p.1)

We are delighted to be joined by colleagues from three key journals that we target in submitting scholarship: Academy of Management Learning and Education (AMLE), Management Learning, and Journal of Management Education.
These colleagues will examine with us such aspects as:
• What does a scholarship of education publication look like?
• What does a scholarship of education publication look like within the different journals?
• Why does educational scholarship matter?
• Top tips for successfully publishing with the different journals
