Engaging Pedagogies in Catholic Higher Education (EPiCHE) is an open access peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the advancement of the theory, research, policy and practice of service-learning, community-based research, social justice education and civic engagement in the context of Catholic higher education. We are interested in including how multiple faith traditions and disciplinary perspectives contribute to strengthening engaged pedagogies in Catholic higher education and beyond.
Contributions may be original research, reviews of research, pedagogical or administrative promising practices, policy implications, and essays on theoretical, organizational or professional issues. The anticipated audience of EPiCHE is comprised of scholars from many disciplines, faculty development professionals, student affairs professionals, policymakers, and administrators in Catholic higher education, non-profit and community partners, and a broad spectrum of other interested parties.
FREQUENCY & FORMAT
Volume One, Issue One of EPiCHE will launch in fall 2014 with approximately six articles, reviews, and essays. From that point forward, EPiCHE will capitalize on the flexibility of the electronic press format and publish new contributions on an ongoing basis. Volume Two, Issue One will launch in spring 2015, with new contributions added to that volume approximately every four months. From time to time, the journal may publish an issue on a special topic, such as women, poverty, or interfaith initiatives.
