Earlier this year, I began my part-time role as Managing Community Editor for the npj Science of Learning Community, allied with the Queensland Brain Institute at The University of Queensland. Nature Research originally initiated the venture, which is an offshoot of npj Science of Learning, a journal dedicated to understanding learning at a range of levels, from neuroscience to psychology to education.
I have made the acquaintance of an exciting range of professionals whose knowledge and expertise varies across specialisations. The art of knowing what to publish to the Community is only challenged by the weight of research available. But this alone has made my role extremely enjoyable and rewarding, as I have gathered a lot of information and made new connections along the way. With so much to explore, I discovered another persons perspective can turn a traditional concept on its head overnight and change up the way science research is conducted for good. It is a real privilege to be in such a pivotal role that assists academic professionals share their research findings and knowledge with the rest of the world.
Please take a look at the npj Science of Learning Community for some interesting discoveries, insights and expertise about how the human brain is designed to learn throughout life, the teachers who put theory into practice in class, the people who study the way we perceive and interact with the world and the scientists who are piecing together the evolutionary puzzle of human intelligence.
