Earlier this semester, we published our first two student articles in our capacity as faculty editor of the Undergraduate Research Journal at the University of Central Florida (the UCF URJ), a peer-reviewed journal for student authors. One article explores possible positive outcomes for children when their parents divorce. (See Grant W. Mohi, “Positive Outcomes of Divorce: A Multi-Method Study on the Effects of Parental Divorce on Children,” UCF URJ, vol. 7, no. 2 (Sept. 22, 2015), pp. 49-62.) The other student article surveys the use of feminist pedagogy in a college course on literature. (See Ashley Torres, “‘Teaching Like a Girl’: A Student’s Reflection on the Benefits and Challenges of Feminist Pedagogy,” UCF URJ, vol. 7, no. 2 (Nov. 12, 2015), pp. 63-75.) Both papers make important contributions to their respective academic literatures. Mr Mohi, for example, presents a nuanced and complex picture of the effects of divorce on children, while Ms Torres reviews the theory and practice of various innovative teaching techniques from a student’s perspective. If you have an interest in these topics, check out their papers and share your thoughts with us!
