The book is called Early Career Academics’ Reflections on Learning to Teach in Central Europe, edited by Gabriela Pleschová and Agnes Simon.

Subject: Learning: Research and Practice




Routledge would like to welcome one of our newest journals: Learning: Research and Practice. To celebrate the first published issue of Learning: Research and Practice, we have made Volume 1, Issue 1 free for the whole year!


Learning: Research and Practice aims to be the journal of choice for empirically supported learning theorisations that challenge the existing view. The intent is to support distinct and progressive research that responds to the problems of current educational practices and traditional views of learning. It seeks to publish articles that introduce innovative perspectives in due recognition of the intellectual history of the field, and grounded in empirically supported investigations of learning processes and outcomes. In recognising learning as a complex phenomenon, Learning welcomes scholarship of a variety of orientations and methodologies, drawing from, but not limited to, the psychological to the sociocultural, and the micro-genetic to the ecological.


Visit the journal’s homepage by clicking here.


Learning: Research and Practice is also looking for you to submit your paper. Click here to find out more about submission details.


We hope you enjoy!

Routledge Journals

Mick's website has a number of useful resources and now includes links to these archives which still contain useful subject specific information, reports and resources.




Apologies for cross-posting


Dear Colleagues


Have you ever wondered what happened to all those great resources accumulated over more than 10 years on the 24 UK Subject Centre websites?


The good news is that the websites of two Centres are still maintained – Economics; and Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies (LLAS); and 16 other Centres have archived their websites.  That leaves six which appear not to be available.


I have added a complete list with links to those still available to the resource page of my website


Hope the list will be useful. If anyone has a link to any of the missing six sites please get in contact.


Best wishes




PS I've been amazed that the bibliographies, handouts and sets of case studies on the resources page have been downloaded almost 59,000 times in the last four years. They seem to have had as much if not more impact as my publications, which have managed fewer than 3,500 citations!
