POSTER.61 - The Evolution of the Teaching Innovation Projects (TIPs) Journal

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Teaching Innovation Projects Journal (TIPS - http://ir.lib.uwo.ca/tips) is an open-access journal that publishes articles describing the scholarly and pedagogical foundations for instructor development workshops on a variety of topics in higher education. Each article is authored by a graduate student or post-doctoral fellow and includes comprehensive learning outcomes, annotated reviews of relevant literature, and detailed breakdowns of learning activities. Since the release of the inaugural issue in 2011, the 64 TIPS articles have been downloaded over 48,000 times by individuals across Canada and as far away as Brazil, Australia, and Germany. TIPS authors have been contacted directly by educators interested in mounting their proposed workshops at institutions around the globe. TIPS authorship invites graduate students and postdocs to discover the ways in which the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) can inform their personal teaching practice, and that of their discipline. Authors engage in the practice of educational development by distilling contemporary SOTL work into a coherent series of learning activities that can be shared with colleagues.

To ensure that the TIPS journal remains a relevant resource, its editors would like to engage the STLHE community in a conversation about the evolution of the journal. Through this interactive poster presentation, we will engage TIPS readers as well as past and potential contributors in brainstorming possible enhancements in the marketing, submission, and review processes. Those who participate in our poster presentation will 1) connect with editors interested in publishing evidence-based workshops on pedagogy, 2) review and offer suggestions for alternative article formats in order to better position TIPS to meet the future needs in higher education; and 3) receive an invitation to join the growing network of TIPS peer reviewers.
