Request for Proposals: Editorship of the Journal of Teacher Education

AACTE invites proposals for a campus-based team to edit the Journal of Teacher Education (JTE) for a 3-year term, commencing with the January/February 2022 issue. Proposals must be submitted online by October 1. Qualified teams from schools, colleges, and departments of education at AACTE member institutions may apply.

JTE, in continuous publication since 1950, is the premier journal for teacher education, providing a vital forum for considering practice, policy, and research in the field. Published five times a year, the journal reaches a worldwide audience and is regularly cited in new research. JTE is AACTE’s only journal, published in partnership with an editorial team based at a member institution and SAGE.

Michigan State University has served as editorial host of the journal since 2015, led by a team of four co-editors—Tonya Bartell, Dorinda Carter Andrews, Robert Floden, and Gail Richmond. Editors aim to achieve a strategic balance among the areas of pre-service and in-service teacher education practice, policy, and research, bringing those areas to bear on one another in challenging and productive ways. They offer a forum for diverse work of teacher education researchers (university and non-university based), teacher education practitioners (e.g., university, state, district, community college), and policy makers at all levels. Linking research and practice is paramount in their vision for JTE.
