We are excited to present to you this special edition of the International Journal of Process Education, celebrating 10 years since the inception of the Academy of Process Educators and 25 years of scholarship in Process Education.
The wealth of scholarship, learning tools, and best practices that have evolved over this period is immense. Many of the original Academy members contributed to this special edition of the IJPE, helping to trace the evolution of Process Education. The content of the article falls into five key areas: (1) Learner Development, (2) Cultural Transformation, (3) Assessment, (4) Educator Advancement, and (5) Curriculum Design. The practices or significant research that advanced each are shared within that area. These practices and research are presented chronologically so the development and connections can be observed. A special sixth area chronicles the Academy of Process Educators as a case study in a successful professional learning community.
An exciting addition to this special edition are online versions of the organizational structures shared in this article: the time line and the pictorial representation of Process Education. These interactive tools allows the user to explore Process Education and its evolution, with links to related publications and scholarship, for ease of exploration, reading, and review. We hope that you enjoy this special edition and celebrate our accomplishments with us as you explore this edition of the International Journal of Process Education.
