InTuition - spring 2012, issue 8

Welcome to your new look InTuition, the professional journal of the Institute for Learning.

Over the past year we have surveyed and spoken to many IfL members about what you want to see from your professional journal. Based on this feedback, we have made a number of significant improvements to the magazine, not least doubling the number of pages.

This has allowed us to include more of the news, views and practical material you tell us you want to read. We have more news pages and we have a new opinion page where, in this issue, Professor Lorna Unwin states the case for vocational teaching. We have expanded our popular interview slot and, in this issue, we find out what makes Professor Frank Coffieldtick. In our lead feature Ian Nash explores issues of professionalism and self-regulation in a fascinating piece charting a decade of progress.

At the heart of your InTuition you will find a wealth of practical and useful content with new sections on best practice and innovation. Our columnist Geoff Petty gets more space in which to share his practical teaching advicehints and tips. A new page for teacher educators and their trainees, a research digest and a books page offer fresh insight and ideas. We also hope you enjoy InTuition’s cleaner, fresher look which is entirely fitting for a publication serving professional teachers and trainers.

InTuition is written exclusively for teachers and trainers and we seek to publish only that which relates to, informs and enriches your professional lives and careers. We know we won’t get everything right and we are relying on you, our readers, to give us the feedback we need to continue improving. Please take a few minutes to complete the feedback forms online at And please don’t forget to dip into our free scholarly supplement CPD Matters.
