It is with great pride I announce that I am joining the Peer Review Board of the Journal of Educators Online (JEO). I was selected by the Editor and Editorial Board according to the needs of the journal. I am excited about this opportunity to contribute to the academic community and appreciate the chance to make a difference.
According to the JEO website:
The Journal of Educators Online (JEO) is a biannual publication by the Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching at Grand Canyon University that highlights research in the broad area of Computer Mediated Learning (CML) which includes distance, online, electronic, virtual, distributed, blended and mobile learning. Computer-mediated learning occurs when an individual interactively learns (formally or informally, synchronously or asynchronously) about material via computer means where the learning materials and pedagogy are developed to take advantage of the available technologies.
The goals of JEO are to:
- Promote a scholarly approach to the practice and profession of teaching in computer-mediated environments.
- Foster dialogue concerning innovative computer-mediated teaching, learning and assessment strategies.
- Enhance understanding and application of best practices in online teaching and learning.
JEO is published in January and July of each year. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis.
In my role as a member of the Peer Review Board I will review two to four manuscripts per year and for provide feedback according to a pre-established set of criteria. I am expected to evaluate manuscripts in a timely and thorough manner with constructive comments to enhance the quality of the manuscript.
Additionally, if I believe a manuscript is not publishable, I must make every attempt to provide extensive comments/feedback with regard to why the paper is not acceptable and provide the authors with constructive directions.
To learn more about the JEO please review the publication’s overview; you can also review the current issue or review past issues. If you are interested in applying to be a member of the JEO Peer Review Board you can do so here.
Looking forward to contributing to future issues of the Journal of Educators Online (JEO)!
