Where would the field of teacher education be without quality feedback from a community of scholars? Peer reviewers play a vital role to substantiate scholarship and help academic disciplines to thrive. AACTE and the Journal of Teacher Education (JTE) are hosting our inaugural free workshop on the best practices of effective peer review. Registration is limited, so save your seat today.  

Why become a promising peer reviewer? Promising peer reviewers are not born, they develop over time. In becoming a promising peer reviewer, you learn the art of peer critique from the perspective of a reviewer, acquire sound approaches to academic writing, become a part of a network, engage recent research in the field, and gain service credit for your professional curriculum vitae. Many of us have the innate abilities as experts in our disciplines. But to be a promising peer reviewer require a particular aptitude and capabilities. When done well, peer review is a win-win-win because it sharpens the author’s writing, advances the journal’s vision, while adding to the peer reviewer’s professional acumen. Promising peer reviewers serve as the lifeblood for the overall health and impact of JTE.

About the virtual workshop. Led by members of the current JTE editorial team, this workshop will give attendees an insider’s view of the peer review process. What are the skills and competencies of promising peer reviewers? How can promising peer reviewers help to ensure an editorial process that is constructive, educative, and avoids idiosyncratic judgement of manuscripts? What are the ways in which peer reviewers are recognized for their service? All these queries, and many more, will be taken up in this participatory workshop where rigorous real-world examples will form the experiences for attendees.
