A Note of Thanks and Welcome!
As we begin our third
volume of JOLT, we regret to announce that one of our founding editors, Dr. Tracy
Penny Light, is stepping down as co-editor with this issue but
has generously agreed to remain an active member
of the JOLT Editorial Board. Tracy has been an integral part
of JOLT since its conception in New Orleans in 2003. She
helped guide it through the initial planning stages and worked
diligently to bring it to fruition with the inaugural issue
in 2005. I'm sure I speak for the entire JOLT Board and for
its many readers when I say "Thanks" to Tracy for her hard
work these past four years.
Fortunately, the vacancy created by
Tracy's departure has been filled by Dr. Michelle Pilati,
Professor of Psychology at Rio Hondo College, who has been an
active member of the JOLT Editorial Board and a JOLT peer
reviewer from the outset. Like Tracy, Michelle has been
involved with JOLT from its earliest stages and has helped
craft it into its present form. She began assuming the role of
co-editor with the current issue and will take on the full
responsibilities with the June issue. Please join me in
welcoming Michelle on board as our new co-editor!
With this issue we also
welcome to the JOLT Editorial Board Mark J. W. Lee,
Adjunct Lecturer, School of Education, at Charles Sturt
University in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia. Mark's
interests lie in the areas of
higher education and information and communications
He brings to the board a wealth of experience and new
perspectives. A side benefit of having him join us is that now
the sun never sets completely on the JOLT Board!
