The Warwick Postgraduate Teaching Community are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the second issue of the Journal of PGR Pedagogic Practice (JPPP), centred around the theme of ‘Virtual, physical or somewhere in between: Postgraduate Pedagogies in the wake of the pandemic'. We invite article submissions for pieces discussing all aspects of the PGR teacher experience.  
The pilot issue of the JPPPLink opens in a new windowLink opens in a new window launched last autumn, and featured articles which reflected primarily on teaching during the pandemic, and the particular challenges (or opportunities) presented when teaching virtually. For the second issue of the JPPP, we encourage submissions which continue to reflect on virtual and hybrid teaching, but also those which consider the move back towards face-to-face teaching. We invite both short critical reflections, and more substantial research led pieces from all PGRs and ECRs who teach in any capacity and in any discipline at Warwick and beyond. We also welcome pieces from those who support the professional development of PGRs, and those involved with pedagogy outside of the typical university teaching structure, such as student-led research projects, continued professional development.
