The Benefits of Student-Led, Peer-Reviewed Journals in Enhancing Students' Engagement with the Academy
Uigín, Dorothy Ní; Higgins, Noelle; McHale, Belinda
Research in Education, v93 n1 p60-65 May 2015
Universities are under ever-increasing pressure from employers to provide some form of interaction with the real world, in order to develop student knowledge and to expand their skill sets (Gott, 1995), while academics are constantly looking for new ways to enhance students' engagement with the Academy. In this context, student-led journals have become increasingly popular ventures in tertiary education in recent years. This note details the establishment of a student-led journal as a core element of an MA programme in the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway). It details the pedagogical context in which, and for which, the journal was established and assesses the benefits for the students who were involved at editorial level in the publication.
