Tondra Loder-Jackson, Ph.D., associate professor in the UAB School of Education’s Department of Human Studies, has been named associate editor for the 2016 issue of the Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research.
The journal is a publication of the American Educational Research Association’s Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research Special Interest Group. The AERA is a national research society that works to advance knowledge about education, encourage scholarly inquiry related to education, and promote the use of research to improve education and serve the public good. Special-interest groups like Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research provide a forum within the AERA for the involvement of individuals drawn together by a common interest in a field of study, teaching or research.
Loder-Jackson will serve as one of two associate editors for the journal. Her program of research is focused on topics related to urban education, Birmingham’s civil rights and education history, activism of educators from a historical perspective, life course perspectives on African-American education, and home, school and community relations.
