GLADSTONE'S educators could benefit from a new magazine aiming to give a voice to education and early childhood students and act as a platform for ideas and opinions in education.
The first issue of Faculty was released on Friday, put together by third-year undergraduate education student Nathan Watts.
Mr Watts hoped educators from regional, remote and metropolitan Australia could use the magazine to express their ideas, opinions and experiences on education to each other in a community of practice.
"We are hoping that for our next issue we can get educators from regional or remote areas to contribute, as it is important to have this blend of experience and environment," he said.
Mr Watts said this was the first cross discipline education magazine in Australia.
"We encourage students who study education to submit their ideas and work," he said.
"I myself am currently a student studying a bachelor of secondary education, and set this up as an opportunity to develop a community of practice amongst students, educators and academics."
He said the first issue had some notable figures contributing such as Dr Ann Stewart, the former director of equity for the University of Queensland.
"A few more examples include Dr Patrick Delaney, a post-graduate Research fellow at the QUT who recently presented at the First Year in Higher Education Conference on Project Unknown, a reality series that follows nine students through their first year of university," he said.
The magazine is open access online at facultymagazine.jimdo.com/latest-issue/.
