Journal of Practice Teaching & Learning

The Journal of Practice Teaching and Learning* covers all aspects of practice teaching ('field education') in workplace settings. It also considers the policy context and the changing expectations of service users, Government and the public. Material is practically relevant to what trainers, managers and workers actually do. A main theme is the effectiveness of training and education as preparation for work.

The Journal will interest anyone striving to develop excellent practice teaching and field education programmes:
  • Trainers and educators
  • Managers
  • Policy makers
  • Personnel and staff development specialists.
The Journal sponsors the annual International Practice Teaching and Field Education Conference. The thirteenth event in this series took place online, 13th-14th October 2021. A special conference issue of the Journal is to be published later this year.
