Teaching in Lifelong Learning: a journal to inform and improve practice comes from the Huddersfield University Centre for Excellence in Teacher Training (HUDCETT). Its goal is to “support initial teacher training (ITT) and continuing professional development (CPD) across the wider LLS and including higher education.” The editors seek “papers that reflect on work that focuses specifically on teacher/practitioners, trainee teachers and teacher educators in ITT and CPD across the Lifelong Learning Sector (including higher education).”
The first issue in Volume 7, for 2016, was examined for this review. It contains the articles: “Researching to Improve and Inform Teaching and Learning in a Period of Uncertainty” “Are Graded Lesson Observations the "Elephant" in Our Classrooms? An Exploration into the Views of In-Service Teacher Trainees on Lesson Observations,” “"Oh, Flip That!" An Evaluation of Flipped Learning in Initial Teacher Education,” and “Exploring the Role of Literacy in Students' Writing Development in the Further Education and Vocational Education Sector.” Articles are well-written; there is a definite emphasis on teacher training methods and programs in the United Kingdom, which is understandable since the journals comes out of the University of Huddersfield.
Those studying to become K-12 teachers may find helpful information here, but this is definitely aimed at teaching trainees and trainers in the UK.
