A brief history: The SFU Ed Review published its inaugural first issue in the spring of 2007. Originally, the Ed Review followed a traditional academic journal format; however, in 2012, the Ed Review was redesigned in order to make it more welcoming and accessible. Through these changes the Ed Review hopes to:
- be more inclusive of our academic community;
- promote discussion and reflection;
- provide a medium that better supports diverse scholarship and research;
- provide a format that better supports shorter works.
Ultimately, we are hoping to initiate a medium that will promote better student awareness about the current work being pursued by peers, offer a safe environment for peer-to-peer dialogue, and encourage graduate students to explore and develop their own voice within academia.
