Jennifer Löfgreen and Chris Ostrowdun Selected as Associate Editors of TLI

The ISSOTL Publications Committee is pleased to announce that Jennifer Löfgreen and Chris Ostrowdun have been selected as associate editors of Teaching & Learning Inquiry (TLI). Their three-year terms begin June 1st.

Associate editors work closely with the editorial team (i.e., two co-editors and several associate editors) in maintaining the journal’s ethos of mentorship and collaboration in making important decisions regarding submissions to the journal. For submissions deemed appropriate for peer review, associate editors assign and work with reviewers to maintain the journal’s ethos and standards, consult with the editorial team in making decisions about submissions, work with authors on subsequent manuscript development where deemed appropriate, and work with the journal’s copy-editor to finalize manuscripts before publication. The associate editors also engage in enhancing TLI’s international outreach, particularly from regions that have had a relatively limited presence in or engagement with the journal.

Jennifer (Jenny) Löfgreen, PhD, pivoted from materials chemistry (PhD, University of Toronto, 2013) to writing instruction for TAs in chemistry, then moving to engineering communication, and finally transitioning into academic development in the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University. Along the way she also worked freelance as a developmental editor for the Nature Research Editing Service. In Lund, her work has covered academic writing, public speaking, teaching and learning in higher education, and SoTL. Jenny is currently working on a new PhD in engineering education, focusing on epistemological assumptions involved in academic development and SoTL in STEM higher education. In July 2022, she is moving back to the University of Toronto to take a position as Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream in the Engineering Communication Program.

Chris Ostrowdun, PhD, has been involved with SoTL and ISSOTL since 2016 in regional, national, and international capacities. He holds a PhD in Learning Sciences from the University of Calgary (Canada), has been a SoTL Postdoctoral Fellow at Mount Royal University (Canada). Chris has served on the SoTL Canada executive, as co-chair of the ISSOTL Student Engagement and Co-Inquiry interest group, and on the ISSOTL Publications committee. His research is grounded in inclusive and social justice education, and he is excited to draw upon these lenses in supporting TLI.

The Publications Committee looks forward to working with Jenny and Chris as the committee supports and collaborates with the TLI editorial team. 

The Publications Committee also thanks all the associate editor candidates for their interest in the position; ISSOTL is fortunate to have so many members invested in the journal’s future.
