  • The new issue of Brock Education Journal is now available

    Dear Readers,

    We are delighted to feature eight articles and a book review in this, the newest issue of Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice. Over the past year Brock Education Journal has gained further recognition by being newly listed in Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) within the Web of Science. ESCI is linked to a wider circulation of international readers. Hence, authors of BEJ gain greater visibility. We are also pleased that BEJ has been relisted with the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). The two listings signal that BEJ produces quality, peer reviewed open access material and is committed to contributing positively to the scholarly open access community.

    Thank you to BEJ anonymous peer-reviewers for their continued support. Their expertise ensures that our journal maintains the level of rigor and engagement that is required of journals by scholarly community-curated open access journal international indexing Advisory Boards such as ERIC, DOAJ and ESCI. Brock Education is published and sponsored by the Faculty of Education.

    Tim Ribaric, Digital Services Librarian and Brock’s Designated Site Coordinator has supported BEJ through the DOAJ application, ISSN and DOI.

  • Workshop: Teaching and student mental health

    Faculty, staff, instructors and graduate students in the Faculty of Education are invited to participate in a professional development session on working with students and mental health issues. Representatives from Brock’s Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre will be facilitating a panel presentation followed by workshop style activities.

    Student mental health is an ever growing concern across University campuses.  Mental health concerns affect academic performance, class attendance, and interpersonal relationships. With suicide as the second leading cause of death among young adults (and typical age of the onset of mental illness being under 24), awareness, prevention and intervention are paramount. This workshop will provide participants a working knowledge of the campus’s mental health concerns, mental health accommodations, and intervention for students of concern. Participants will leave with working knowledge of mental illness and an understanding of their role in support and intervention.

    Feb. 28, 2018
    Workshop 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
    Lunch 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
    Alphie’s Trough

    All available spaces for the event are now full.

    Contact Diane Collier (dcollier@brocku.ca) for more details.
