I thought it might be good to start a thread on journals that educators could use as resources to learn more about current ideas in education research. Well, okay, I thought mostly someone else might be able to offer some pointers toward well-respected journals in the field. We probably all know where to find scientific journals relevant to our field, but education journals might be a bit more of an unknown. Perhaps if there are ones that are a bit more "applied" in terms of using new educational approaches toward science, math, engineering, or health professions teaching, those might be good for our audience here. Or, just some good, solid, educational psychology type sources that would be geared toward higher education? I find plenty on early childhood and adolescent education, but haven't yet met with success trying to find things addressing college-aged students. I'm sure they must be out there, I just don't know where to start looking for them apparently. Just as an example, I recently found The Journal of Nursing Education. While the articles are relevant specifically to my interests in teaching nursing students, they seem a bit behind the times in terms of educational theory and very weak on solid measures of outcome (for example, one article basically was just about how much the students liked a particular teaching approach, and never did any comparisons of test scores or any other sort of objective measures that might indicate it was actually effective). So, while that might be a good place to publish outcomes of applying various teaching techniques to the nursing curriculum, I don't think it's a particularly good place to look to see what more novel ideas are around that might work better but still be unknown to those who are actually out in the classrooms.
