Join the GCU community of teaching scholars and provide your feedback on the current discussion papers for the Journal of Instructional Research.
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 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. All individuals who participate in the review process will be issued a certificate of participation and will be acknowledged in the 2014 volume as a member of the Peer Review Board.
Current discussion papers include:
- "Who Am I Here?" Disrupted Identities and Gentle Shifts When Teaching in Cyberspace
