2022 JoT Writing Colloquy

2022 JoT Writing Colloquy: January 9-12, 2022 (Digital Format)


Re-Booting Journal on Teaching!

The Wabash Center is rebooting the Journal on Teaching (JoT) into a multimodal academic journal which will boast a collaborative peer review process. The collaborative peer-review process incorporates the JoT Writing Colloquy and is intended to strengthen writers and writing about teaching and the teaching life.

In 2022, JoT will publish two volumes. We anticipate accepting submissions of scholarly articles, fiction, non-fiction, short-story, poetry, op-ed, etc. – based upon our volume theme. For a full description of the collaborative peer-review process, please see Journal on Teaching section of our website HERE.

Description of JoT Writing Colloquy

The JoT Writing Colloquy, scheduled for January 9-12, 2022 will be our debut for creating a cohort of writers for a particular volume. Participants in this first colloquy will be encouraged to submit articles for the fall 2022 issue entitled “Changing Scholarship.”

The time in the January 9-12, 2022 writing colloquy will be a combination of plenary sessions, small group interactions, individual instruction and workshopping of in-process writing. All participants are asked to submit an article to the fall 2022 issue entitled “Changing Scholarship” on or before August 1, 2022. Participants in the JoT Writing Colloquy will receive a stipend in the amount of $1500 plus up to ten hours of writing coaching before article submission or by July 30, 2022.
