Journal Club

The Teaching Commons hosts a monthly Journal Club meeting to facilitate and encourage informal discussions of the scholarship of teaching and learning. Join us in reading a new article each month to discuss ideas, reactions, and questions with fellow colleagues interested in exploring innovation in teaching and learning.


Upcoming Journal Club Meetings

Join us for the launch of the second year of our Journal Club! We will be meeting on Monday, September 18th, 2017 from 2- 3:30pm in the TC Lounge to discuss Making the Connection Between Research and Reality: Strategies Teachers Use to Read and Evaluate Journal Articles. Refreshments and good conversation will be provided.

If you have any suggestions for articles to discuss, or if you are interested in hosting a Journal Club meeting, email Lisa Endersby, Educational Developer, at

York University Libraries offer a variety of Research Guides to assist you in finding additional readings and research on topics discussed in the Journal Club.
