TeachingWorks journal club to launch on November 16

Tags: deans updates, goldin, teachingworks

TeachingWorks will launch its new journal club on Friday, November 16, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m., in the TeachingWorks suite (room 1005). We are borrowing this practice from the field of medicine, which uses such clubs as a way of helping faculty members and students stay abreast of new research. Essentially, a group comes together regularly to review new research that has been published in a specific field. A different person leads the journal club each month by culling through a set of journals, pulling out important articles, and summarizing them for the group. Meetings are efficient and focused on sharing information, and do not require any planning or preparation (except for the group leader). Participants are not required to read the articles to be discussed prior to the meeting.

The TeachingWorks journal club will focus on new research on teacher education and will cover the following journals:

Journal of Teacher Education
American Educational Research Journal
Elementary School Journal
Journal of Curriculum Studies
Teachers College Record
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis
Teaching and Teacher Education

We hope to be joined by faculty, graduate students, and staff members. Simona Goldin, research specialist, will lead the first session, but leadership responsibilities will rotate among participants. All members of the SOE community are welcome and I hope you will consider joining us.
