EdLab is a research, design, and development unit at Teachers College, Columbia University. EdLab envisions and pilots knowledge projects for a fundamentally different education sector that is attuned to the emerging post-industrial, information-based world. more >>
Average time to publication in academic journals is woefully slow. Because of this, research that aims to impact policy is often published too late to have an influence. For example, a large number of papers about the reauthorization of NCLB will be published after the decision is made. To address this problem, EdLab has helped the Teachers College Record (TCR) take some dramatic steps.
  • All TCR papers are pre-published online. Once a paper is accepted for publication, it is sent to a copyeditor and scheduled for online publication.
Your Permanent Record? (YPR?) is an experimental, teacher-support podcast recorded at the EdLab. YPR? aims to create a reflective and supportive audio space for teachers and other educators by exploring education-specific issues in varied podcast formats: traditional talk show style, featured guest interviews, participatory podcasting, and case study discussions. YPR? appears on the EdLab site as well as its own podbeam site.
The Automated Author Feedback Tool (AAFT) provides real-time machine generated feedback to authors submitting papers to the Teachers College Record for the purposes of improving submission quality. This feedback is based on data mining seven years of feedback on papers that have been rejected for publication. By pre-screening proposed articles prior to final submission, the system can provide authors with concrete suggestions for improving their papers.

5 key takeaways from the journalism and entrepreneurship conference at CUNY.

Many people say the internet and digital media has destroyed journalism, but I say it has humbled it. I recently attended a conference on journalism and entrepreneurship at the CUNY School of Journalism, and I want to share some key takeaways that can be adopted by us as publishers, designers and developers.
