We look to publish our own work and that of others on an open access basis
We believe in offering support and transparency so offer mentoring support for those new to publishing their thoughts and open peer review for those wishing to submit more academic work.
Please see our publication guidelines.
Our first piece of work on digital pedagogies is ongoing. It has collected data from 10 founding member colleges of the experience of teaching at a curriculum level between March and December 2020.
The project aims to answer the following research questions:
- What is the nature of the digital teaching, learning and assessment experience in post-16 education and training from March 2020?
- How have teachers in different curriculum areas adapted or developed their digital practice?
- Which digital pedagogies have proved most or least helpful to curriculum teams in post-16 education and training contexts?
We defined online teaching as any distance, remote, blended, hybrid or digital learning that took place when students or staff were away from the campus. This may be activities that took place within the timetabled slots or outside this time.
The work will look to create not just a picture of what teaching looked like over the period since March 2020, but will look to align or develop existing models of online teaching based on the findings of this study.

Working and living in FE during the COVID-19 pandemic
The Research College Group are delighted to be able to provide a home to #FEResearchMeet’s first publication ‘Working and living in FE during the COVID-19 pandemic: 25 FE practitioners’ voices’. This unique publication attempts to record and share the experience of staff across the sector during the first lockdown and is a visceral and hope filled documentation of FE lecturers lived experienced across what were challenging times.
