The journal Critical and Reflective Practice in Education, Volumes 1 to 4, is not only a journal but also a set of historical texts which in many ways mirror events in an institution which was in transition. Many of the themes which are examined in the journal are continuing educational situations and problems with roots in the past. The first part of these reflections focuses on the origins of what has been since 2013 the University of St Mark and St John, and looks at the biographies not only of James Kay-Shuttleworth and Derwent Coleridge, founders of the original Colleges (separately, of St Mark, and of St John), but also looks at George Birkbeck and the thinking behind the founding of the University of London. The narrative moves on to consider the history of Marjon in the last ten years and the particular circumstances in which the journal was initiated. The last sections consider the editorial factors behind the journal and provides an overall gloss by comparing and contrasting each of the four Volumes and their content. The two driving forces of this Janus-faced ‘in-house’ journal which attracted significant contributions from outside (indeed from other parts of the UK, including Northern Ireland and Scotland, as well as from South Africa, different parts of Europe and Australia) show first that research could arise from teaching, the obverse of the usual link, and second, that anyone teaching about current controversies should be able to contribute to them.
