ADCHE 18.1 (2019) Call for Papers: Risk-Taking
Download the Call for Papers here

In Art and Design education we encourage our students to take risks. The idea of risk-taking is highly valued in art and design education and yet there have not been many articles in ADCHE that explore scholarship and practice in relation to this key concept.

ADCHE are keen to explore this theme in future editions of the journal and would like to actively encourage prospective authors to respond to this invitation.

Have you carried out research that explores pedagogies that support risk-taking?

Have you interviewed students about their understandings of risk-taking and how it supports their creative development?

Are you keen to critique the concept of risk-taking and challenge its hegemonic position in the art school?

If this invitation is of interest to you please submit a paper for our upcoming volume 18.1 (2019)

Deadline: 15 October 2018

Submission guidelines can be found to download here. 


Art, Design & Communication in Higher Education strives to promote and share pedagogic research in art, design and communication disciplines. This peer-reviewed journal encompasses creative disciplines taught in a range of higher education contexts, which includes Art Schools, Colleges and Universities. The journal focuses on the pedagogies associated with all aspects of creative practice education – from theory and practice to online elements of studio-based courses. In its commitment to the enhancement of learning and teaching methods through research, the journal offers detailed accounts of specific research projects. By using the findings of these enquiries, contributors reveal the potential value of new educational strategies and stimulate the advancement of creative teaching methods.

Alongside these practical approaches, contributors also develop a critical platform for the study of teaching in the arts and media sector. In order to assimilate these theories in a real environment, the contributions query the context in which educational strategies are practiced. The journal examines the correlation between the success of practiced techniques, in relation to both the type of institution and the genre of study. Articles are gathered from an extensive community of researchers, allowing the journal to provide a comprehensive profile of education research in art, design and communication studies.

• Major papers – suggested length is 5,000–6,000 words. Material presented will contribute to knowledge in its field and should include original work of a research or developmental nature and/or proposed new methods or ideas that are clearly and thoroughly presented and argued.
