Proposal Title

The Journal of Non-Significant Differences: Learning the Research and Publication Process

Proposal Abstract

This presentation will provide information about how the Journal of Non-Significant Differences (JNSD) connects with the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) mission. The JNSD is a peer-reviewed, student-led journal that focuses on publishing quantitative research produced by students in which results were not statistically significant. Although this may seem counterintuitive, the emphasis of the journal includes teaching students the process of publishing and promoting the concept that quality research, not results, is the primary goal of the researcher. This relates directly with the mission of SoTL, in that, the focus of the journal is on the learning and teaching process. The presentation will be interactive consisting of small group and cooperative learning formation that will allow participants the opportunity to engage with the presented material. Potential takeaways for participants include the learning and teaching aspects of developing and operating a student lead journal.
