Best Paper Published in JLS Award

In our editorial in 2017 we noted that JLS had completed 25 years of publication. In that period it has been a consistently high-performing journal, and one of the flagship journals for the field of the learning sciences.

We are excited to announce that, beginning with volume 26 (2017), we have a created a new feature:  the annual Best Paper Published in JLS Award. The award recognises exceptional scholarship and contributions made to the field of the learning sciences via JLS, and permits reflection on the state of scholarship in the field beyond what is possible during the peer review process. Candidates for the award are nominated by the editors and associate editors, and the winner is selected by an external panel of distinguished learning scientists.

JLS webinars

Pruitt-Igoe demolition in 1972

Part of JLS's social media strategy, we have begun to organise webinars in which an author discusses a new paper with a panel and audience. We've had 2 so far, and they have both been very engaging conversations! It is a great way to have a conversation about your new paper with some of the people you think need to know about it. We record the video (and edit it for length if necessary) and make it available here, so this is a good resource that can be used with the article, for example if you use it in a course. Seeing seasoned scholars discuss a research article can be a great learning experience for graduate students.

In the most recent webinar, Kevin O'Neill discussed his thought provoking Reports and Reflections article with Rogers Hall,Brian K. Smith and Josh Radinsky. O'Neill looked at big "failures" in modern architecture and urban design to see what we can learn from them for design research. In doing so, he makes a distinction between "designing for the future", that is, designing interventions that address conditions that we can reasonably expect to last, and "deigning the future", where one tries to create a new educational reality. The webinar especially explored faulty predictions and the unintended consequences of designs. Want to know more about what the picture shown here has to do with design research?
