Professing Education Journal


Professing Education is published semi-annually by the Society of Professors of Education. The journal presents a collection of short provocative essays covering a variety of aspects of education. The goal of the journal is to engage the hot-button issues that concern Education through an ongoing series of theme oriented publications. The first issue was published Winter, 2002.

President’s Note
With this issue of Professing Education, the Society of Professors of Education launches a new format and direction for Professing Education. Professing Education, now an e-journal (no print copies), features full journal length articles and aims to stimulate and sustain dialogue among the members of the Society of the Professors of Education about teaching in education. We see and hear in ourselves and colleagues a need for a forum to discuss teaching in education—the aims, craft, histories we inherit, challenges, approaches, content. Professing Education aspires to provide a place for starting and continuing these conversations. Please consider submitting a manuscript.

Call for Papers: Professing Education publishes articles focused on the practice of teaching in education. Recognizing that the field of education is inter- and trans-disciplinary, the editors seek essays and studies from a variety of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives, on all matters related to teaching, “education,” and pedagogies. Further, we also value and encourage creative forms of writing. Submissions are peer and editor reviewed. Manuscripts should generally be 4000-7000 words in length, 12-point Times New Roman, double spaced, APA-style, with 1 inch margins. In support of the Society’s goal of stimulating and sustaining dialogue among its members, all accepted authors must be members of the Society of Professors of Education, or join prior to publication.
