A case study reports preliminary evaluation of academic practice within a particular learning and teaching, curriculum, institutional or wider educational context. It presents the process and outcomes, includes a review of the relevant literature, quantitative and/or qualitative evaluation methods, and discusses the benefit of the study for a specific area or wider context. A case study may inform future research work. The word limit is a maximum of 2000 words, excluding references.
A reflective article provides informed analysis and insights into academic practice and involves constructive criticism of your own practice or that of others, challenging current practice. It may involve for example reflecting on your own professional or academic practice or experience, evaluating a project or experiment, a particular event, or considering literature findings and linking theory with practice/reality. It may also prompt thinking about future practice. The word limit is a maximum of 1000 words, excluding references.
