Publishing in VJEP
Opportunity awaits! Find out more about exciting articles and upcoming publication calls that await within the Video Journal of educational Pedagogies (VJEP).

VJEP Special Topic Paper Call

We invite global scholars to look back and ahead, take stock of their work and the work of others in order to speculate on the futures of visual pedagogies in blended and digital education, opening it up to new ways of understanding, knowledge and learning. We encourage reflections about whether, why and how visual pedagogies can progress from the status of alternative and sporadic pedagogies – reserved  for the artsy people, “visual learners”, and image-friendly practitioners, disciplines and programmes – towards being more integrated into digital and blended education.

Part 1) Immersive Possibilities of Education in VR
November 30th 2021, 6 pm (NZST)
Hosted by Rene Novak via Zoom
This introductory session explores the pedagogical potential of virtual reality (VR), introducing some leading platforms for collaborative online VR education. The session will build VR knowledge, confidence and community, developing a platform and topic plan for the following session. Discussion topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • How immersive pedagogies look like
  • Potential of VR for education
  • Multi-modal and multi-sensory perceptions in virtual worlds
  • Commercialisation of the virtual space
  • Philosophical notions of VR
  • What software platforms are there to be utilised for education
  • How can immersive arts become a new kind of artistic expression
  • VR vs the COVID epidemic
  • Ethics in VR
  • Virtual gamification of learning
  • Potential projects we might want to pursue as a group

The aim of this seminar is to establish a regular discussion group of interdisciplinary experts and enthusiasts for VR, that may result in potential group projects.

Part 2) The AVP Hybrid Reality Discussion Group
February 22nd 2022, 6 pm (NZST)

Hosted by Rene Novak
A mixed-reality hybrid event collaboratively negotiated in platform and topic in part 1. 
Re/sponse-able Visual Ethics 
Friday 8th April 2022, 10 am -2 pm (NZST)
Co-hosted by Jayne White, Marek Tesar & Dean Sutherland
A hybrid event hosted by University of Canterbury, Christchurch Aotearoa, New Zealand
This half-day hybrid kōrero takes up the important topic of visual ethics as a dialogue between researchers, students, teachers and the academy - a conversation started some time ago by AVP and friends at PESA. It will be of interest to all concerned and we are particularly keen to facilitate robust discussion between these groups about what it means to represent learners through images and their (re)production. We extend a special invitation to those who serve on ethics committees within (and beyond) the academy or who share an interest in understanding the constraints and opportunities for approaches to visual ethics that are not only responsible but 're/sponse-able'. 

VJEP-Brill Publishing Workshop
 Friday 8 April 2022, 3 - 6 pm (NZST)
 A hybrid event hosted by the University of Canterbury, Christchurch Aotearoa, New Zealand

John Bennett (Brill) will speak on Open Access and Creative Commons. Attendees are invited to bring their ideas for publication as well as any questions they might have. 

Seeing More-Than-Human: A One-Day Symposium on New Materialist Visual Methodologies 
June 16th 2022, 12 - 4 pm (NZST)
Hosted by Jacoba Matapo, Sean Sturm and colleagues from the School of Critical Studies in Education at the University of Auckland via Zoom
This half-day hybrid kōrerorero addresses the role of visual methodologies in new materialist theory/practice in education and beyond. “Visualisation,” or scopic representation, is often taken to be central to Western science and its offshoots, grounding concepts such as objectivity, verification and perspective that inform much positivist and some interpretativist research. But other approaches to the visual in research are possible, many of which have been taken up by new materialist researchers: cartography (Deleuze & Guattari), diffraction (Barad), haptic vision (Puig de la Bellacasa), to name just three. In this symposium, we will explore through discussions and workshops how new materialist theorists/practitioners have exercised their visual image-ination in their research in education and beyond.


This event will be followed by an end-of-day AGM at 4 pm (NZST), which is also taking place at Auckland University with an online capacity for members and is hosted by Bridgette Redder.

Its Autotune But Not as we Know it: Provocations for Time-Based Media in Education
August 2022 online symposium
Hosted by Andrew Gibbons and Andrew Denton
The intersections of media and time have changed, are changing, and will change, education. From every audio-visual conferencing session to every online video clip and every cinematic affect. In the study of visual pedagogies, we might stop and take note of the aesthetics of these intersections, that are always around, and always mediating, when in a pandemic, and when not.

In this timely symposium we explore provocations for education evident in the applications and aspirations for time-based media. How do media shape the experience of time in education, and how might questions and lessons concerning time offer ideas for the future of media (and the study of media) in education?
Pedagogical Provocations 
October 2022 Twitter symposium
Hosted by Bridgette Redder
This Tweet event provides a digital space to make visible pedagogies that celebrate the visual! Teaching comes in a multiplicity of shapes and forms. It is easy to fall into the habit of seeing teaching and learning as a process which happens in the classroom, but pedagogy in its broadest sense, can be found everywhere, if you just remember to look. To celebrate some of the ways teaching and learning can be initiated and fostered through the visual medium, AVP invites you to a Twitter symposium, to share a pedagogical event based on video/image/memes/art/gaming/animation/film demonstration that raises a visual provocation – provoking people to think, feel, and imagine the visual possibilities. Each presenter will have 15 minutes to deliver their pedagogical provocation presentation using up to 12 Tweets with text, images and/or video attachments. The intention of this event is to spark dialogue around the pedagogical provocation posed.

Please email your pedagogical provocation ‘brief’ and biography to by 2nd September 2022. 
De-colonising seeing(s): Traversing Pacific Indigenous onto-epistemologies through digitally mediated spaces. A virtual taster seminar
December 2022
Hosted by Jacoba Matapo at Auckland University
The two hour virtual seminar will start with a panel discussion of Pacific scholars and their experiences of traversing Pacific Indigenous onto-epistemologies through digitally mediated spaces. The panel discussion will draw upon two broad themes; the human and non-human ecologies of digital media and sustainable futures. Following the panel discussion, participants will be invited to take virtual tour of, the largest online hub for Indigenous Pacific content.
