Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy

The mission of The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy (ISSN 2166-6245) is to promote open scholarly discourse around critical and creative uses of digital technology in teaching, learning, and research. Educational institutions have often embraced instrumentalist conceptions and market-driven implementations of technology that overdetermine its uses in academic environments. Such approaches underestimate the need for critical engagement with the integration of technological tools into pedagogical practice. The JITP counters these trends by recentering questions of pedagogy in our discussions of technology in higher education.

Released continuously throughout the year, JITP’s Short Form sections (described below) are each edited by one editor and are published on a rolling basis.

  • Assignments publishes syllabi, lesson plans, and assignments that highlight interactive technology and pedagogy, along with a short narrative reflection (suggested length of 800–1,200 words) on how well the assignment worked in practice. Links to a class website or online responses to the assignment would be ideal. Before submitting, please review our published Assignments pieces and include a brief statement (1-2 sentences) that explains why your submission is appropriate for this section. Questions about this section should be sent to assignments@jitpedagogy.org with “Assignment query” in the subject line.
  • Blueprints features short recipes for digital teaching and research – series of replicable steps that can be shared among instructors and researchers. JITP invites digital scholars to submit innovative recipes or innovative applications of a standard recipe, and/or reflections about using such recipes (see The Programming Historian for reference). Before submitting, please review our published Blueprints pieces and include a brief statement (1-2 sentences) that explains why your submission is appropriate for this section.

  • We invite Reviews of new and important texts in the field, as well as reports from noteworthy conferences and workshops relevant to the subjects of technology and pedagogy. If you have an idea for a review, or would like to hear about upcoming reviewing opportunities, please write to reviews@jitpedagogy.org with “Review query” in the subject line.
  • Teaching Fails publishes ideas that fell flat—assignments that didn’t work out, readings, projects, or digital tools that none of your students understood. Tell us your story as a way of thinking through what went wrong. Fail better by helping others learn from your mistakes. The suggested length for a Teaching Fails submission is 800-1,200 words. Before submitting, please review our published Teaching Fails pieces and include a brief statement (1-2 sentences) that explains why your submission is appropriate for this section. Questions about this section should be sent to teaching.fails@jitpedagogy.org with “Teaching Fail query” in the subject line.
  • Tool Tips calls for examinations of a digital tool or a set of comparable tools that you have used in a class. We are most interested in pedagogical uses of tools for instruction, or tools used by students to accomplish academic work. The best submissions will address how smoothly the tool worked and detail its strengths and drawbacks. Links to online examples of the tool being utilized would be ideal. The suggested length for a Tool Tips submission is 800–1,200 words. Before submitting, please review our published Tool Tips pieces and include a brief statement (1-2 sentences) that explains why your submission is appropriate for this section. Submissions that do not adhere to our Short Forms section will be rejected. We do not accept product advertisements. Questions about this section should be sent to tool.tips@jitpedagogy.org with “Tool Tips query” in the subject line.
