Welcome to the Association for Visual Pedagogies (AVP)
In mid 2015, Professor Michael A. Peters, whose initiative it was to establish a video journal rather than a standard print journal in education, negotiated with international publishers, Springer to establish the Video Journal of Education and Pedagogy (VJEP) which was launched in August 2016. For the latest information see the News page
Following a video-linked meeting with our institutional partners we decided to establish 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.
Watch the two playlist interviews on our Visual Pedagogies YouTube Channel — one with Michael about the journal and another with Tina about the Association. These interviews were conducted by Petar Jandrić and Milan Bajić (Croatia) and form part of the first editorial of the Video Journal of Education and Pedagogy.
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. We began with eight Institutional Members who are represented on an Executive Committee and now are looking forward to more Institutions joining us as well as General Members as both our Association and the journal grow.
We are delighted that our first AVP Conference, held in June 2016 with 100 people from around the world attending, was organized by Petar Jandrić, University of Applied Sciences, Zagreb, Croatia one of our Institutional Members. Our 2nd AVP Conference was held in June 2017 at Aalborg University, Denmark, another one of our Institutional Members.
This year we offered a successful two day Symposium in Auckland, NZ, hosted by Auckland University. The theme was ‘Public Pedagogy”.
