Hidson, Elizabeth (2022) Sunderland Reflective Action in Education Open Access Journal (SunRAE). SunRAE, Sunderland.

Item Type: Other


This open access journal was the brainchild of the University of Sunderland’s International Initial Teacher Training team. The team, working with internationally based trainee teachers since 1999, had long discussed the fascinating insights into international practice that were shared through the formal assignments built into the master’s-level modules within the Postgraduate Certificate in Education programmes. They saw the great wealth of knowledge that the assessment process produced, but of course, this was private to the trainees and graduates. The team wanted a way to collate, curate and share work so that international teachers could learn from others around the world. The idea for the journal was born. The idea was that trainees and recent graduates could submit their work to the journal, experience a supportive and developmental review process and have their work published through the journal.

In the 2021-2022 academic year, the team was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Teaching Fellowship for the SunRAE project. The initial project scope included a conference and an open access e-journal. Thanks to further internal funding it grew to include a podcast series, posters and TeachMeet videos at the conference, and in effect, the development of a community of practice around research and teaching in international schools from the perspective of those involved in international initial teacher training through the University of Sunderland.
