Who we are: Faculty Focus is an online publication from Magna Publications. Since 1972, the higher education community has turned to Magna for its timely, high-quality products and services.

What we do: Faculty Focus features innovative strategies, best practices, and fresh perspectives for creating a better learning environment. Brief and to the point, our emphasis is on the practical, rather than the theoretical. Yes, we’re interested in why a technique works, but we’re even more interested in how it works, and how others can adapt and implement your strategies in their courses.

What we’re looking for: Please send us your most effective teaching strategies, classroom management techniques, online teaching tips, and other insights gained over the years that help you do your job better. Articles should relate to one or more of the topic categories found in the right hand column of our homepage. Submissions should be approximately 800 words in length.

  • Submissions should consist of no more than 25% theoretical information; the rest should be practical advice for teachers to use.
  • Due to the nature of online newsletters, authors are encouraged to adopt a more practical and informal tone than is expected in academic journals.
  • Articles should not have been registered for copyright or published elsewhere (either on paper or electronically) prior to publication here.

Once you’ve written your article, please send it as a Word doc to Mary Bart, managing editor, email address Please include a brief bio (not your entire CV) with your submission.

We look forward to receiving your submission.
