Two faculty members at Arizona State University’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College have editorships at leading journals in their fields, while three others were selected for a list of 200 top education scholars.

Leanna Archambault, associate professor in Learning Design and Technology, has accepted a role as senior editor of Computers and Education. The international journal aims to increase knowledge and understanding of ways in which digital technology can enhance education, through the publication of high-quality research, which extends theory and practice. 

Jill Koyama, vice dean of Educational Leadership and Innovation and professor at MLFTC, is an associate editor at Anthropology and Education Quarterly. The peer-reviewed journal draws on anthropological theories and methods to examine educational processes in and out of schools, in the U.S. and international contexts. Articles rely primarily on ethnographic research to address immediate problems of practice, as well as broad theoretical questions. 

Rick Hess of EdWeek, revealed his list of U.S. scholars who accomplished the most over the last year to shape educational practice and policy. The 2022 Rick Hess Straight Up Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings selects just 200 university-based scholars out of more than 20,000. This year’s list included MLFTC’s David Berliner, Regents Professor Emeritus and Research Professor; Gene V Glass; Regents Professor Emeritus; and Punya Mishra, associate dean of Scholarship and Innovation and professor.
