Whether this ripple was the result of TCR's third editor, Max Brunstetter (himself an expert in audio-visual education), larger societal forces or both, discussions of educational technology in the journal...

Please feel free to peruse the slides from today's meeting (which include a brief overview of the journal editorship), and let us know if you have any tips, questions or resources for the project. Many thanks!
