Pédagogie collégiale is a “beacon” for players in the field of higher education. It seeks, among others, to guide pedagogical intervenors at college level, to shed light on interventions by presenting rich and varied information, and to forecast major changes coming in the field of education. Pédagogie collégiale is also a reflection anchored in reality, attesting to the practices of those who work in the college environment. Lastly, it serves as a stimulant by proposing and initiating various paths leading to reflection and action.
Pédagogie collégiale, a publication of AQPC, embraces the Association's mission to promote and stimulate the development and evolution of college pedagogy.
- To support professional development;
- To strengthen professional identity;
- To promote college-level research, particularly through the publication of research results;
- To promote the links between theory and practice;
- To ensure a place at the table in public debates regarding college issues;
- To provide a venue for differing points of view;
- To support pedagogical innovation in higher education.
Pédagogie collégiale remains open on an ideological level and offers the opportunity to express divergent viewpoints. Its source of inspiration comes from various schools of thought, both national and international—all of which enables the magazine to remain first and foremost a prominent and stimulating vehicle promoting pedagogical information, exchanges, and reflection.
Articles submitted must be in the keeping of the journal's main orientations and be of interest to its readers (Pédagogie collégiale readers are professionals in the field of education, mainly college teachers).
The Editorial board evaluates articles using the following criteria:
- Agrees with the orientations of the journal.
- Interests a large segment of the journal’s readership.
- Deals with a topical issue.

- Appealing pedagogical format.
- Concise style
- Usefulness of tables and illustrations (if included).
- Usefulness and relevance of titles and sub-titles.
The Editorial board can ask authors to modify their article or refuse to publish it.
Defamatory articles or articles that could harm someone's reputation or the reputation of groups will automatically be refused.
Except for the articles published in the Actes du colloque de l'AQPC or in journals published by colleges, articles already published in French in other media (or that will be published elsewhere before they are published in Pédagogie collégiale) will also be refused.
Articles submitted in English and accepted by the English editorial committee will be translated into French by the AQPC: the French version of the article will be printed in the journal, while the English version will be posted on the AQPC website.
Every article chosen by the editorial committee will go through linguistic revision. The translation and the edited article will be sent to authors prior to publication. The Editor-in-chief will need the collaboration of the authors through the whole process.
