Teaching Ethics is another solid journal. The director of the Academy for Teaching and learning at Baylor is a philosopher, so you might also check out their website.

AAPT has a Zoom conference on Wednesday (https://philosophyteachers.org/2021-summer-session-day-3-program/). Requires membership (sliding scale starting at $25), though membership includes online access to “Teaching Philosophy” and “AAPT Studies in Pedagogy.” There’s an active “Teaching Philosophy” group on Facebook that would be a good place to post any further questions that may arise.


There's also a book of methods (some now in need of updating, but it still makes for really interesting reading) compiled by the founding editor of Teaching Philosophy, Arnold Wilson. It's called "Demonstrating Philosophy. Novel Ways to Teach Philosophical Concepts".

It's not cheap at this point, but I've found it a very worthwhile investment.

John Rudisill's "The Transition from Studying Philosophy to Doing Philosophy" is an excellent recent-ish paper published in Teaching Philosophy! I loved this bit:

"There is a difference between merely studying a particular domain of knowledge called
‘philosophy’ and fully engaging in a sort of intellectual activity, also called ‘philosophy."

The APA has a Teaching Philosophy Newsletter with lots of pedagogical stuff.
