About

Focus and Scope

The Journal of Innovation in Polytechnic Education (JIPE) is an online, open-access journal devoted to publishing peer-reviewed papers and insights into the unique value of the polytechnic education model.

The journal features scholarly work that explores the integration of theory and practice in an authentic manner and education that fosters innovation and entrepreneurship. 

JIPE especially encourages contributions exploring the impact of innovative teaching and learning practices that push the boundaries of traditional approaches to learning or educational delivery including: inter-disciplinary approaches; the engagement of students with industry, action learning and/or applied learning, industry partnerships, skills development and research opportunities.

The journal publishes original empirical papers, brief reports, and review papers, and welcomes submissions from scholars across the polytechnic and community college sector, both within and outside of Canada.
