Judith Green, a professor in the Department of Education at UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School, has been invited to join the Editorial Board for the American Educational Research Journal - Teaching, Learning, and Human Development section, the premier peer-reviewed journal of the American Educational Research Association. Green, whose term as co-editor runs from October 2010 – October 2011, was selected because of her expertise and reputation as a researcher in education.
American Educational Research Journal publishes original empirical and theoretical studies and analyses in education that constitute significant contributions to the understanding and/or improvement of educational processes and outcomes. The Teaching, Learning, and Human Development (TLHD) section explores the processes and outcomes of teaching, learning, and human development at all educational levels and in both formal and informal settings. The journal also welcomes policy research related to teaching, learning, and learning to teach. Manuscripts accepted for publication represent a wide range of academic disciplines and use a variety of research methods.
Judith Green, a professor in the Department of Education at the Gevirtz School, has been teaching for more than 4 decades across levels of schooling (K-20). She received her M.A. in Educational Psychology from California State University, Northridge and her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, where she explored the relationships between teaching and learning, literacy and knowledge construction. Green’s recent research focuses on how classroom practices support access to students across academic disciplines in classrooms and in virtual communities. Green was recently named a fellow of the American Educational Research Association.
She is a co-director of LINC, the Center for Education Research for Literacy and Inquiry in Networking Communities, where she works with teachers and researchers to explore how the new advanced technology networks support innovative learning opportunities. Green and her colleagues have an approach to curriculum and technology in which teachers and students create a virtual and interactive community in which they plan collaborative research across city, state, and national borders and share their local inquiry to make global connections.
