Editorial Aims and Scope
In Talks to Teachers on Psychology and Life
(1892), the lectures that inaugurated the field
of educational psychology at Harvard, William
James referred to pedagogy as the "art and
science" of teaching. A century later of
educational paradigms gained and lost,
educational researchers and scholars are
attending yet again to pedagogy and knowledge in
classrooms. In many educational systems, pedagogy
is proving to be the key rallying point for
teachers, teacher educators and researchers, and
activists and policy-makers committed to
reclaiming the art and science of teaching from
narrow instrumentalist and economic agendas.
Pedagogies: An International Journal aims to
reestablish teaching and learning as the
educational practices that matter.

In the last half-century, teacher educators,
educational researchers, administrators, and
policy-makers have focused on testing systems,
school management, teacher quality, and
assessment, monitoring and standards schemes of
almost every conceivable kind in their efforts to
renew and improve schools. But for teachers and
researchers committed to reforming schools and
reinventing teaching in the new millennium, there
is a real urgency to attend more closely to
theoretical and applied, empirical and
hermeneutic work on pedagogies and knowledge in
classrooms. Governments are realising that they
cannot make policies via test scores alone, but
that they must have a much better grasp of what
goes on in classrooms. The actual social and
cultural, cognitive and intellectual work of
teachers and students are and should be a focal
area of research and development, description,
illustration, debate and reform. Facing the
social and cultural, political and economic
challenges of this new millennium - as James and
Dewey did in the last - the remaking of knowledge
and pedagogy is the key to educational change.

The enterprise of redesigning knowledge and
pedagogy, however, has changed. Transformation
of communications media, innovations in aesthetic
and representational forms, the spread of popular
and educational cultures, the multiplication and
dissemination of scientific knowledge, and
powerful claims to indigenous and local knowledge
have together placed systems, schools, and
teachers under increasing pressure to reframe
their basic assumptions: How should schools
respond to changes in power and knowledge
relations, the rapid proliferation and shifts in
human knowledge, and the new designs of
aesthetics, language, media, and everyday
cultures? How can everyday classroom practices
engage with diversity of knowledge, student
communities, cultures and resources, and
technology and design?

Pedagogies brings together emergent and breaking
work on all aspects of pedagogy: classroom
teaching and learning in response to new
communities and student bodies, curriculum and
responses to new knowledge and changing
disciplinarity, blends of traditional and new
communications media in classrooms, and most
importantly, how we might improve and renew the
everyday work that teachers and students do in
classrooms. It features quantitative and
qualitative, disciplinary and trans-disciplinary,
empirical and theoretical work, and will include
special editions on key developments in research
on knowledge and pedagogy. It aims to push the
boundaries of theory and research - to seek out
new paradigms, models and ways of framing
education - while at the same time keeping an eye
squarely on that which matters: teaching and
learning in classrooms.

This refereed journal is about change and
innovation in the most common, typical, and
central of educational processes: teaching and
learning in classrooms. Pedagogies will apply
current theoretical and analytical research work
to the question of how pedagogy is being
transformed to make new knowledge, new expressive
modes and, quite literally, new kinds of teachers
and learners. In Dewey's terms, it is focused on
the "designed" ways in which cultures and
societies undertake the work of social
transformation through education. This in part
will involve discussions, debates, and studies of
the most tenacious and perennial educational
problems, some of which have been with us for a
century: teaching to diversity, the persistent
educational marginalisation of specific
communities. But it will also focus on innovative
engagements with new technologies and new forms
of identity, new repertoires of teacher practice,
and preparation of students for emergent forms of
civic, workplace and community life.

It will do so in ways that model cosmopolitan
flows of ideas and innovation-from and across
educational communities in North and South, East
and West, seeking out the most innovative
thinkers internationally, and creating
international dialogues about teaching and

Authors will address issues of change and the
need for practical programmes of policy
innovation, curriculum reform, and pedagogical
