Meet the Editors: Publishing About Educational Technology Research and Practice
Abstract: Take advantage of this opportunity to meet & talk with the editors of the Journal of Online Learning Research (JOLR). We envision this as an informal conversation about crafting your work for JOLR or potentially other venues. Of particular interest may be a new section inJOLR, the Practitioner Corner, which is focused on explanations & reflections on educational innovations. These articles should reveal trends in educational needs & everyday factors that influence K-12 distance, online, and blended learning. Articles in the Practitioner Corner section should go beyond “Did it work?” to explore how interventions function and the boundaries of their scalability. Editors will answer questions about the journals, discuss the submission & review processes, & provide attendees with advice on how to increase the likelihood of publication.
