With the publication of the 13th Volume in 2009, EGallery has made available over 75 scholarly works created by MT Students.

EGallery was established in 1999 to provide an electronic medium for international publication and consideration of exemplary scholarly work produced by Master of Teaching students in the Faculty of Education at the University of Calgary. 

EGallery's mission is to provide an electronic medium for international publication and consideration of exemplary scholarly work produced by Master of Teaching students in the Faculty of Education. The EGallery accepts the premise that the work presented is that of first and second year students whose perspectives and viewpoints are constantly growing and changing.  The EGallery editorial team seeks submissions of critical essays, independent inquiries, themes of teaching, case work and biographies of learning from first and second year Master of Teaching students. 

All submissions are subject to a review process. To be considered for review, submissions must coincide with the EGallery's mission, and adhere to publication and submission guidelines. Contributors are responsible for familiarizing themselves with each of these requirements, along with the ethical guidelines for both authors and the editorial team. 

Published works express the viewpoints and/or narratives of the original authors and do not necessarily reflect the official positions of the Faculty of Education or the University of Calgary.

Publication and Review Guidelines

  • The EGallery publishes as submissions are reviewed and accepted. There will be a minimum of one volume published per year.
  • All submissions are subject to a blind, editorial and/or peer-review process. 
  • Submissions are accepted at any time during the year.
  • Should EGallery or the author want to reproduce any published work, which results in copyright being transferred to a third party, the permission of both the EGallery and the author(s) will be required.
  • Contributors must keep the EGallery up to date with contact information (i.e., current e-mail address), and be prepared to have their work viewed for at least one year before it is archived.
  • The views presented in the EGallery are those of the contributors, and it is expected and accepted that over time, the views and opinions presented in published contributions may change.

Submission Guidelines

  • The EGallery is a web-based, peer-reviewed publication. Therefore, paper submissions will not be accepted.  Manuscripts are accepted electronically as an e-mail attachment -
  • ABSTRACT - In order to be considered for the review process, an abstract (maximum 75 words) must accompany the manuscript.
  • Authors must use the American Psychological Association (APA) style guidelines for all references and citations.

  • Submissions will only be considered for review if they are accompanied by the recommendation of a faculty member or instructor from the Faculty of Education. Recommendations must be a joint effort. The student may approach a student-selected faculty member or instructor for a recommendation. The faculty member / instructor who assessed the work may approach the student with a recommendation that the work be submitted to EGallery for review.  A faculty member's / instructor's recommendation for a work to be considered for publication by the EGallery can be e-mailed to and should include the author(s) name, title of submission, and the faculty member's / instructor's recommendation that the contribution be considered for review.
