New York University College of Dentistry (NYUCD) is delighted to introduce the inaugural issue of the Journal of the Academy of Distinguished Educators (JADE), published by NYUCD. JADE can be accessed by going to http://www.nyu.edu/dental/ade/.
An online-only, open-access journal, JADE is the publications component of the NYU Academy of Distinguished Educators. The mission of the Academy is to enhance overall teaching at NYUCD and to stimulate excitement among teachers around their intellectual content.
JADE intends to invite experts in higher education to face off on the thorny issues confronting higher education, even as it endeavors to foster interdisciplinary and interprofessional collaboration.
"The mission of JADE is to endorse reinforce the goals of the Academy of Distinguished Educators and to promote the free exchange of ideas regarding higher educational theory, methods, and tools," said Dr. Mary E. Northridge, JADE editorial panel chair and assistant professor of epidemiology and health promotion at NYUCD. "On behalf of the Editorial Panel of JADE, I hope that you will enjoy the publication and the website, and that you will share it with your colleagues. We look forward to your comments and suggestions," she said.
This inaugural issue is a model for the sorts of topics that JADE intends to tackle.
