Editorial & Production Team
All About Us
A lovely thing to see:
through the paper window's hole,
Educational Insights is an
electronic journal sponsored by the Centre for Cross Faculty
Inquiry (formerly the Centre for the Study of Curriculum and
Instruction), Faculty of Education, at the University of British
Columbia. Our location however, resides in the practices,
theories, ambitions and dreams of our Editorial Circle, who
are scholars and educators from across Canada, and into the
United States. (See Editorial Circle).
The Editorial Circle, curriculum theorists, writers, and
pedagogical adventurers, are presently repositioning Educational
Insights as an innovative evocative provocative intertextual
space for engaging in new dialogues of enRapturing con/texts
and reimagining spaces of pedagogy, inquiry, and interdisciplinarity.
Our intent is to encourage a community that honours difference
and polyphony, while sharing a vision of pedagogy, education,
inquiry as spaces of challenge and hopeful conversations.
Educational Insights originated in 1990 as a publishing venue
for graduate students. In 1995, co-editors, Gary Rasberry
and David Penberg, moved the journal from hard copy to cyberspace,
a decision which has proven prophetic in terms of 21st century
communications and hermeneutic meaning-making. While the initial
journal issues were limited to linear text presentation, there
is now the opportunity to explore pedagogical and curricular
positioning through sound, video, non-linear and performative
text. In celebration of the 25th year of the Centre for the
Study of Curriculum and Instruction, Director Karen Meyer
proposed that Educational Insights be imagined anew as an
international journal open to all scholars whose work encourages
new ways of envisioning educational issues, pedagogy, curriculum,
inquiry, and interdisciplinarity.
