I am always interested to hear and discuss more about where did you find a place to publish and what did you publish lately?

It would be a good opportunity here to share you publications.
This way we would keep up the news in our TEP SIG community.

Any interesting articles that you read lately?
Please share with us the references.



Lost in the sea of education....

The other day I was talking with several of my former colleagues from grad school and other faculty fellows, about the weakening of Educational Psychology as a field of study and teaching.
The number of Educational Psychology programs at the universities is decreasing, and I am talking here about Ed Psy named programs.
Also the number of Educational Psychology named courses that we teach is decreasing and more faculty from other domains (such as C&I, Teacher education, Early childhood, etc.) teach our Ed Psy courses.

Even if we teach topics from Educational Psychology, the courses have many diverse names such as:
- Learning in the Schools
- Middle School Learner
- Learning and Cognition
- Learning and Development in Schools
- Human Development and Learning
- Education and Human Development

I would be interested to find out what are other TEP SIG members perspective on the questions.
Is our Ed Psy field a dying field?
Do the names used for Ed Psy courses allow other fields to take over and that is why lesser need for Ed Psy faculty?
Is there a real need (in the first place) for Educational Psychology?
