We invite you to bring your disciplinary perspectives to bear on the broad themes of ‘quality enhancement’ and ‘student assessment’ and submit items highlighting aspects that are of particular import to art, design and media higher education. 

‘Quality enhancement’ may relate to issues emerging from, and responses to, the National Student survey data.  However, we are also interested to hear about work that examines ways that courses, departments and institutions, collect information on the student learning experience and use this to effect change and enhance quality.  We are also keen to hear from individuals and institutions probing the role and responsibilities of external examiners and the ways that they support and are supported in enhancing the student learning experience in art, design and media subjects.

Finally we hope to share work exploring approaches to assessment in art, design and media and the impact of these on student learning.

Feature articles – we welcome, for example, articles that explore, regional or national policy agendas and initiatives, departmental and institutional strategies, the outcomes of pedagogic research, new technological developments, and their impact on art, design and media higher education.  For full guidelines visit: A fee of £300 is payable for accepted submissions.  Feature articles are between 2,000-2,500 words.
