I am pleased to announce the arrival of a new progressive education journal, (Re):Mix - A Transnational Journal of Artful Teaching & Learning. (Re):Mix seeks to explore, question, (re)present and challenge depictions of teaching and learning in order to uncover the emerging complexity of artful practice. At a time when teaching, leading, and learning are often situated as simple input-output models, this journal seeks to challenge that understanding by showcasing and juxtaposing works that illustrate artful practices by learners.
(Re):Mix is an on-line, open access journal. Print copies will be available at a cost.
Call for Submissions: Issue 1: Exploring Uncertainty within Artful Practice
For this issue, contributors are asked to consider how uncertainty is elemental to the artful practice of teaching, leading, and learning. Contributors are invited to submit written and visual works (single images and visual essays) that explore, question, (re)present and challenge the idea of uncertainty being a necessary element inherent in artful practices.
Some questions to consider might include:
- What does uncertainty look and/or sound like in your work?
- How does uncertainty influence the work you do as a student, teacher, administrator, activist, mentor?
- How does meaning emerge in your work?
- What conditions give rise to uncertainty? What conditions inhibit uncertainty?
- What does it mean to be uncertain as a teacher? As a leader? As a learner?
- How do you privilege uncertainty in your work, in colleagues' work, and/or in students' work?
- Is there a cost to being uncertain?
