Our vision at the International Journal of Process Education is “to be a catalyst for the scholarship of teaching and learning in support of the efforts of the Process Education Academy to transform higher education.” We intend to accomplish this goal through the steps in our mission:
• To provide a forum for, and an archival record of, scholarly research process education
• To elevate skills in the discipline of the scholarship of teaching and learning
• To explore promising new research areas in process education
• To foster classroom-based research
With this journal we invite scholars with interests in constructivism, experiential learning, problem-based learning, and pedagogies incorporating active learning strategies and a learner-centered approach, to join us in a continuing conversation about teaching and learning.
In this inaugural edition the reader will find articles that explain the history of process education interspersed with articles applying process education to contemporary classroom settings in higher education. Following our principles of constructionistic learning, we begin this edition with applications, merge into our history then follow up with insight into the importance of the learning environment quality.
