Journal Evaluation Project

Teachers College at Columbia University, Quantitative Evaluation Methods in International Education
To disseminate the science and the personal experience gained by TEA parcticipants in the Arctic and Antarctic in a more effective manner in the future; we make the following recommendations. The evaluation team based these recommendations on a thorough analysis of the online journals and the surveys from the TEAs, Non-TEA teachers, and the students who read or used the TEA journals.
Provide more photographs with detailed captions
Photographs provide a vivid insight about a place, a thing, or a scientific process for those, especially the students, who have not seen or experienced similar situations. The student suggestion with the highest frequency was to include more photographs. As important as the photograph is a caption to contextualize the image. The photographs should have detailed captions so that the readers clearly understand what the photographs illustrate. Photographs also provide a visual medium in the journal for the TEA to communicate to her/his audience.
