The editors of the Nordic Journal of STEM Education, in an effort to revive the journal, will host a two-day in-person workshop (March 7 and 8, 2022, in downtown Oslo) to guide authors in developing a manuscript for NJSTEME. Through a generous grant from Universities Norway, we can cover reasonable transportation costs, food, and lodging costs for up to 20 participants.
The workshop will consist of two consecutive days of in-person activities and a follow-up meeting for each participant or team with one of the facilitators. During this professionally facilitated workshop, we will analyze and discuss previously published articles from the journal and work with writing and reviewing guides to help participants better understand how to write for this journal. To accommodate a diverse group of participants, the workshop will be conducted in English.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be prepared to serve as authors for NJSTEME, enhancing dissemination of research on STEM teaching and learning in Nordic countries. Furthermore, additional deliverables (a Canvas course based on the workshop materials, an initial webinar to introduce the course), coupled with these 20 new “journal ambassadors” will help grow the writing and reviewing population of the journal, helping to ensure its future and expanded reach. After the workshop the participants will be able to
- Use a reviewing guide to evaluate and prioritize both the strengths of previously published contributions to the journal and areas for improvement, in terms of both the scholarly approach and content and the writing
- Use a writing guide to analyze their own and their peers’ works in progress, in relation to broad ideas of scholarly work suitable for the journal, the aims and scope of the journal, and the reviewing guide for submissions
- Create a plan for further independent work on their own manuscript that addresses both the process and the anticipated product
We seek broad diversity in participating institutions and STEM disciplines. Priority will be given to applicants who can document that they have the foundations of a manuscript (e.g., they have tested an educational innovation), and to dyads (teams of two interested in collaborating on a manuscript)…these dyads could involve, for example, a course instructor and a PhD student involved in the course innovation. Early-career researchers are encouraged to apply.
