Paul, I just saw a link in my weekly email from the Math Forum with info on a journal with a pedagogic focus (the emphasis appears to be undergraduate).
The De Morgan Journal
http://education.lms.ac.uk/
Through the De Morgan Journal, London Mathematical Society (LMS) aims "to encourage academic mathematicians to reflect on current issues in mathematics education at all levels, from primary school to graduate studies; to encourage them to explore links between higher mathematics and elementary mathematics; and to examine significant policy implications which may affect the wider mathematical, educational, or scientific community."
The journal began last year, publishing freely downloadable articles such as
Perceptions, operations and proof in undergraduate mathematics Induction and Recursion Multiple choice exams in undergraduate mathematics Nurturing able young mathematicians Acceleration or enrichment
Blog posts, which date back to November, 2011, have included
Finland's School Success Wolfram Alpha, a year later Circle in Box: quality books for mathematical circles Word problems and the Khan Academy In Praise of Pick's Theorem Blame the teacher?
LMS also posts its policy documents here. See, in particular, "Position Statement on Use of ICT in teaching of mathematics at HE institutions," "Vision for Science and Mathematics Education 519," and "Bridging the Mathematics Gap." ========= Richard
