The Journal of Instructional Research (JIR) is an annual publication by the Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching at Grand Canyon University that highlights faculty research relevant to best practices in post-secondary instruction. Unique to JIR is the use of a two-stage evaluation process with public peer review, interactive discussion and final formalized peer review.
We are seeking your participation in reviewing, providing feedback and discussing the current submissions to JIR. To participate in the review process (while simultaneously fostering your own knowledge of emergent teaching practices), visit the JIR website at: http://cirt.gcu.edu/jir/discussionpapers. The public review period lasts until January 3, 2012.
All faculty who participate in the public review and discussion process will be issued a certificate of professional engagement appropriate for inclusion in your professional development portfolio. In addition, this is a wonderful opportunity to gain experience as a peer reviewer for academic journal outlets.
In order to participate in the discussion, you will need to create a CIRT account login at: http://cirt.gcu.edu/join . If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Jean Mandernach (firstname.lastname@example.org).
