New TLAR Editors
NCLCA announces that the new TLAR Editor will be Michael Frizell, Director of Student Learning Services at Missouri State University. He will step down from his current position as NCLCA Corresponding Secretary at the completion of the NCLCA Fall 2012 conference in Reno, Nevada to assume the TLAR Editor position, effective for the Spring 2013 issue. The new TLAR Managing Editor is Nichole Bennett-Bealer, Director of the Learning Center at Northampton Community College.
Statement of Purpose
As an official publication of NCLCA, The Learning Assistance Review seeks to foster communication among learning center professionals. Its audience includes learning center administrators, teaching staff, and tutors, as well as other faculty members and administrators who are interested in improving the learning skills of postsecondary students. The Learning Assistance Review is available free of charge to all NCLCA members. The library or institutional subscription rate is $50.00.
The Learning Assistance Review aims to publish scholarly articles and reviews that address issues of interest to a broad range of academic professionals. Primary consideration will be given to articles about program design and evaluation, classroom-based research, the application of theory and research to practice, innovative teaching strategies, student assessment, and other topics that bridge gaps within our diverse profession.
The journal is published twice a year, in the spring and fall. The co-editors are issuing this call for manuscripts to all learning professionals who are interested in contributing to the field through the publication of relevant, scholarly articles. All submissions are subject to a masked review process.
Manuscripts will be forwarded to the editorial board for masked peer review. Authors will then be notified regarding the status of their articles and will receive recommendations and feedback in a timely manner.
