The Teaching and Learning Forum series of annual conferences has been conducted since 1992 by the five universities in Perth, Western Australia, namely Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University, The University of Notre Dame Australia, and The University of Western Australia. After 22 years of TL Forums [1], it is timely to present this Special issue of Issues in Educational Research, for which the broad purpose is to advance fine examples of the TL Forum's activities, selected from one of its categories, namely full papers accepted via a peer review process.

From TL Forum 2013's full papers, a further development process and an Editorial Subcommittee selection process has led to the articles presented in this Special issue. The Editorial Subcommittee commends the thirteen Special issue articles as an illustrative sample of TL Forum's contribution to the scholarship of teaching and learning [2], its grounding in practice-based or practitioner research [3], its diversity, collegiality and motivations, and its positioning as a link between the perspectives of 'professional development' and 'research'.
