Each year, the editorial team of the International Journal for Academic Development (IJAD) appoints an international selection panel to choose an ‘Article of the Year’ from all articles published in IJAD in a given calendar year. The IJAD Article of the Year 2015 is the article that the selection committee feels best meets the following criteria:

  • meets IJAD’s aims to “enable academic/educational developers in higher education across the world to exchange ideas about practice and extend the theory of educational development, with the goal of improving the quality of higher education internationally”;
  • shows excellence in style, form, clarity and readability;
  • appeals to an international academic development readership;
  • articulates a robust and defensible research process; and
  • produces original and/or innovative insights that excite the reader or offer something new to the field of academic development.

The winning article for 2015 is  “The chameleon on the tartan rug: adaptations of three academic developers’ professional identities” by Barbara Kensington-Miller, Joanna Renc-Roe, and Susan Morón-Garcí

Congratulations to the authors!
