Origins and aims of NEXUS

NEXUS has been created to help bridge the gap between ‘researchers’ and ‘teachers’. It aims to :

  • promote the (re)connection between teaching practice and research
  • provide pre- and in-service teachers with easy and free access to scientific literature in their discipline
  • strengthen the collaboration between teachers graduating from high schools and universities
  • foster collaboration between researchers, teachers and teacher trainers
  • offer an innovative journal format in the field of didactics
  • overcome the existing distance between the realities, expectations and needs of the various stakeholders (researchers, student teachers, active teachers).

NEXUS aims to promote and develop a culture of high-quality scientific production in its conception and accessible in its reception, both physically (open access) and conceptually.

 

Scope

NEXUS welcomes contributions from Belgian or international researchers, teacher trainers, teachers of various disciplines and target levels (primary, secondary, university), as well as stakeholders from both the private and public sectors responsible for educational programs and teaching-related projects.

NEXUS publishes featured articles, classroom explorations, materials, book and media reviews, and news in English and French.

 

Open access policy

Our journal provides immediate open access to its content; We believe that making research freely available to the public supports global exchange of knowledge. Users have the right to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles.
