In-house Journals as a Form of Program Development
M. Y. Schaefer, J. S. Lesley
Rikkyo University, Japan
In-house journals are a feature of many university English departments and centers, providing teachers with a forum to publish articles primarily of interest to their institutional colleagues. More specifically, journals can play an important role in formalizing teachers’ professional development, including through collaboration with peers, with the ultimate aim of improving the quality of learning for students.
This presentation will describe the benefits of producing an in-house journal from a program development perspective, as well as key steps to follow when overseeing such a publication. These will be exemplified by a current in-house journal co-edited by the two presenters.
