The JPER Blog at

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Welcome to our newest Internet home. As the official journal of the ACSP, we can think of no better place than the new ACSP website to present and converse around the contents of the Journal of Planning and Education and Research. After all, the research and pedagogy articles published in JPER represent not only the hard work of the authors, but also the collaborative efforts of a wider community that teaches, mentors, reviews, listens, shares, attends conferences, asks questions and all else that goes into an academic planning career. Through this new blog we hope to engage with an ACSP membership that brings together this community of planning educators, researchers, and students.

For starters, we will use this space to announce the contents of new issues and present newly published research and pedagogy. However we have ideas to expand into original commentaries, teaching ideas, and remembrances, both from ourselves and from guest bloggers. We also want to hear your thoughts for how we can best use this newly created space. You can use the comments feature below to contribute your ideas. We look forward to growing this space together with the ACSP community.
