This second issue of Volume 1 of the Caribbean Teaching Scholar cuts a swath across institutions with submissions from the University of Guyana, the UWI, Cave Hill, the UWI, St. Augustine and the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business. It is important that, as the journal becomes more fully established, we maintain our attractiveness beyond any one campus or institution. This also justifies the breadth of our peer reviewers who are from both within and outside the region.

The articles in this issue feature research into methods and approaches for enhancing student learning experiences and performance. Most address the increased use of technologies. Others raise a host of issues and challenges that must be considered as we shape our management of learning effectiveness in the changing classroom landscape. The overarching implication of the technology in teaching thrust is that the introduction and effective use of technology to enhance teaching and learning is a strategic enterprise that must be continually researched toward the goal of learning improvement. Also, in this issue, we introduce Tales from the Field where authors recount ways in which their practice has been impacted, and they share, through the medium of the journal, special interests that can make a difference to the practice of their colleagues.
