The Atrium: A Journal of Academic Voices is a peer-reviewed cross-disciplinary journal that invites and encourages innovative, creative and critical articles that spur academic discourse across the disciplines in two- and four-year colleges. Articles published will be those of interest to a broad range of disciplines. We are interested in limited amounts of fiction and poetry, controversial topics in the academy, and articles that cross boundaries. We seek papers that describe best practices and student engagement of controversial topics. The Atrium intends to be a passageway of ideas and practice across the disciplines. There is, after all, a murky landscape that practitioners must traverse on their way from Learning Theory to Instructional Practice: Accepting the possibility that no theory is panacea, The Atrium acknowledges the value of discourse in the project of uncovering the principles that might govern the development of Best Practices. We publish electronically in the Fall and Spring. Submissions are ongoing, but the deadline for submissions to the Spring issue is January 1, 2011.
The Atrium is a publication of the Northwest Region of Ivy Tech Community College, reputedly the largest community college system in the United States.
