Focus and Scope
Nordic Journal of Language Teaching and Learning (NJLTL) is an international open access journal which publishes scholarly articles on subjects related to teaching and learning foreign languages, particularly in the Nordic context. The journal promotes research and professional development work across the Nordic countries, although articles within the fields of foreign language learning and teaching from outside this region are also accepted. Articles focussing on foreign language teaching and learning from interdisciplinary perspectives will also be considered. Articles may be written in Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, English, French, German, Spanish.
NJLTL has two sections. The main section contains double-blind, peer-reviewed articles. Our forum section features shorter articles of general interest such as book reviews, opinion pieces, lectures, professional development reports or contributions from educators and students about hands-on experiences in the classroom.
Workplace Innovation is described by the European Workplace Innovation Network (EUWIN) as the participatory and inclusive nature of innovations that embed workplace practices grounded in continued reflection, learning and improvements, in the way in which organisations manage their employees, organise work and deploy technologies. It builds bridges between the strategic knowledge of the leadership, the professional and tacit knowledge of frontline employees, and the design knowledge of experts.
Workplace Innovation seeks to engage all stakeholders in dialogue in which the force of the better argument prevails. Workplace Innovation manifests itself in empowering job design, self-organised team working, continuous improvement groups, high involvement practices and representative partnership structures whose concerns transcend traditional industrial relations, and the encouragement of entrepreneurial behaviour at all levels of the organisation.
Workplace Innovation is inherently social because it derives from interaction between different stakeholders both within and outside the organisation. It is directed at the simultaneous improvement of organisational performance and quality of working life.
The European Journal of Workplace Innovation is published by the Department of Working Life and Innovation at the University of Agder, Norway, within their set of online journals. The plan is to publish two issues a year. The first issue appeared in February 2015. The journal welcomes articles that collect short cases from as many countries as possible. EJWI will also be encouraging reviews of alternative perspectives on Innovation, including the recognition that Workplace Innovation incorporates diverse perspectives and debates.
