It remains a goal of mine to disseminate the great work published in TRSE to audiences outside of academia as much as possible, particularly to individuals who would likely benefit from our scholarship but may not have access to the journal or the time to wade through lengthy articles (e.g., K-12 teachers, preservice teachers, policymakers). In recent years, we have increased the accessibility of the journal through efforts such as the Visions of Education podcast and by having TRSE content published in mainstream news outlets.
It is my pleasure, then, to announce the journal's latest endeavor: A YouTube channel. Starting with Volume 50 of the journal, all TRSE authors will be invited to create a short (10-15 minute) video that describes their article in straightforward, easily-digestible language. These videos also give authors space to highlight aspects of their work that may not translate well to a written publication (e.g., images or audio from their data that they have permission to share).
It is my hope that these videos will be useful for teacher education programs, K-12 professional development, or other endeavors in which asking people to read a 40-page article housed behind a paywall is not feasible or desirable.
Here is a link to the channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdlDfUT2sRGzyj4bzfMAPCg
Three of the articles from the most recent issue, Volume 50, Issue 1, are represented, and the collection of videos will grow over time. I have also sent emails to authors who have published in TRSE in recent years to invite them to submit videos about their work, and I will add those as they become available.
So, please subscribe to the channel, share the link widely, and make use of these videos in your classes or other professional endeavors!
