This summer, I was the co-editor of Capture, and on the Editorial Board of Alfred, E-Journals at the University of Winchester. I undertook a number of interviews, re-edited those interviews into workable pieces for submission, re-edited a number of other pieces (including reducing 10,000 word Final Year Projects, to 3,000 word articles, without losing the essential meaning of those articles), and co-wrote an article on Web Accessibility for those with recorded disabilities. These journals have their official launch at the Learning and Teaching Development morning today.
CAPTURE was launched in 2008. It is an e-journal highlighting L&T at the University of Winchester. Material for the journal is collected and edited by staff at the LTDU, and is an important way of the results of L&T funding being disseminated.
See http://www.winchester.ac.uk/capture for a PDF of the journal, available to download.
The success of CAPTURE prompted the development of ALFRED which showcases excellent undergraduate student work at the University of Winchester. The HEA have appealed to universities to provide further opportunities for students to engage with the research process, and generate their own research. ALFRED demonstrates how students are undertaking high quality research and gives them the opportunity to have their work published.
