Changes in the AJET Editorial Team
The Australasian Journal of Educational Technology (AJET) is led by a small team of dedicated Lead Editors, Associate Professors Michael Henderson (Monash University, Australia), Eva Heinrich (Massey University, New Zealand) and Petrea Redmond (University of Southern Queensland, Australia). They are supported by a high quality team of Associate Editors.
We have had some significant changes in the team and we would firstly like to thank you and farewell some of our most senior Associate Editors: Associate Professor Helen Farley, Associate Professor Shirley Agostinho and Dr Chwee Beng Lee. Helen and Shirley have served the journal as Associate Editors since 2013. We also say farewell to Chwee Beng who has been involved as either Lead or Associate Editor since 2015.
As the push to publish in high quality journals continues the quantity of papers being submitted to AJET as a Q1 journal also increases. To cope with the additional workload we are very excited to welcome eight new Associate Editors who will start late 2018 or the beginning of 2019. Half of the new Associate Editors are from overseas and bring a further international outlook to the editorial team.
- Dr. Eamon Costello, Dublin City University, Ireland
- Dr Christopher E Dann, University of Southern Queensland, Australia
- Associate Professor Teresa Foulger, Arizona State University, USA
- Dr Henk Huijser, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
- Associate Professor Matthew Kearney, University of Technology, Australia
- Dr Chien-Ching Lee, Singapore Institute of Technology, Singapore
- Dr Kate Thompson, Griffith University, Australia
- Professor Johanna Mathilda (Joke) Voogt, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
On behalf of ASCILITE and the AJET community we sincerely thank the outgoing editors and warmly welcome the new team members.
