Welcome to the Association for Visual Pedagogies (AVP)


the Video Journal of Education and Pedagogy (VJEP)

Video Journal of Education and Pedagogy (VJEP) commenced publication with Springer in August 2016 until September 2018. Subsequently, AVP became the owners of the journal which is now being published by Brill Publishers, a Dutch based international publisher with over 300 years experience of academic publishing (see Brill).

With support from our eight founding Institutional Members, we established a new learned society which would not only support the new Video Journal of Education and Pedagogy (VJEP) but also promote and advance the emerging field of visual pedagogies. Consequently the Association for Visual Pedagogies Inc became a formal legal entity incorporated in New Zealand in 2015.

The Association for Visual Pedagogies (AVP) is an exciting, pioneering development which is creating a multi-disciplinary global community with shared interests in visual pedagogies.  With 10 Institutional members now in place we are looking forward to more Institutions joining us as well as General Members as both our Association and the journal grow.

Listen to our founding Editor-in-Chief – Distinguished Professor Michael Peters – speak at our most recent conference about AVP and his vision for our work with Brill.

So far AVP has held five annual international conferences / symposia hosted by University of Applied Sciences, Zagreb, Croatia (2016), Aalborg University, Denmark (2017), University of Auckland, New Zealand (2018) and RMIT University (2019).


AVP wish to announce that Distinguished Professors Michael Peters and Tina Besley are moving on from their roles with Video Journal of Education and Pedagogy and Association for Visual Pedagogies to make room for others. Michael is Founding Editor of the journal and Tina Founding President of AVP, respectively. In these roles they led the development of both the Society and its journal – from an idea to reality. AVP will be recognising their tremendous contributions, with gratitude and respect, by bestowing on them the status of AVP Fellow at our AGM in June this year.

Professor E. Jayne White will become Editor-in-Chief of VJEP and Dr Sean Sturm new Editor of the Brill book series (with Tina staying on as co-Editor) –  further announcements will be made following the AGM which will be held online on 16 June.
