NWJTE has a new Issue, and a new home!

Warm Greetings!

On behalf of the Editorial Team, we are pleased to announce the publication of Volume 12, Issue 2 of the Northwest Journal of Teacher Education. “The Art of Listening: Cultivating Care and Concern” includes five articles aimed at those interested in the exchange of ideas around teacher education and adult learning. We hope they stimulate conversations and thinking–enjoy!

Here is the link to Volume 12, Issue 2

As well, please see the journal’s home through Portland State University. We are delighted to have a new infrastructure of support and communication to ensure that we continue to share our good work in teacher/education in the Northwestern region of U.S. and Canada! To get us started, we have a new call for proposals out. As you visit our new page, please note and share the Call for Manuscripts; the submission deadline for the next issue is January 15, 2018.

With cheer,
NWJTE Editorial Team

Become a Blogger at the 2013 NWATE Conference

1-CampusViewInterested in extending your learning at the 2013 NWATE Conference and connecting with educators both in attendance and online?  Become a live blogger for the 2013 NWATE Conference!

What is a Live Blogger? A live blogger is someone who writes essentially shares their learning from the conference online.  Live bloggers create posts that are posted on the NWATE website and shared with NWATE followers through the website, Twitter and Facebook.

What does a Live Blogger post about? A live blogger can post pictures, summarize key learnings, pose questions, share highlights, etc.  Basically, anything that stands out for you at the conference that is worthy of sharing!  Check out some live blogging that happened at a recent Alberta Initiative for School Improvement Conference to see examples.

Why should I become a Live Blogger? Through live blogging, we can extend our collective learning beyond the conference to build our online professional community.  Not only are we connecting with other educators (both at the conference or interacting online), we are modeling learning that ultimately we strive to engage in with our students!

How do I become a Live Blogger?  Send an email to nwate@shaw.ca, expressing your desire to dive into the world of live blogging for the 2013 Conference.  You will be added to the NWATE site as a guest author and your posts will be featured on our site during the conference.  You will also receive information about how to create a post using WordPress, if unfamiliar with the platform.

What if someone leaves a nasty comment about a post I wrote? Live blogging is about connecting and sharing and interactions will remain professional.  All comments made on posts are moderated and only those which respectfully and professionally add to the conversation will be posted.

We encourage you to embrace the power of our online community and consider becoming a live blogger at our 2013 Conference!!  Email nwate@shaw.ca if interested or to find out more!
