Hey, it's Christmas Eve. I've got no inclination to do a heavy lift today, or try to say something profound. Fortunately, my inbox filled up with several new education journals over the last few weeks, while I was distracted with various commitments. So, I was leafing through a few, just to get caught up, and, well... you know where this is going. Yeah, yeah, I know I'm a terrible person, with no appreciation for the exquisite thoughtfulness and fair-mindedness of academe. C'est la vie.
Here are some pieces that I was especially eager to read. After all, there are few places outside of edu-journals that can you find people writing self-seriously about "social telemetry," "disability critical race studies," "Haole female teacher-travelers," and the need to "put persons back in education."
- "Master's thesis supervision: Relations between perceptions of the supervisor-student relationship, final grade, perceived supervisor contribution to learning and student satisfaction"
- "The relationship between student-centred lectures, emotional intelligence, and study teams: A social telemetry study with mobile telephony"
- "Dis/ability critical race studies (DisCrit): Theorizing at the intersections of race and dis/ability"
- "Re-tracing the Haole female teacher-traveler in Hawaii"
- "Education as if people matter: John Macmurray, community and the struggle for democracy"
- "Putting persons back into education"
And, of course, the inevitable,
- "Resisting compliance: Learning to teach for social justice in a neoliberal context"
