Cascade Journal of Knowledge

ISSN 2563 1861

The purpose of the Cascade Journal of Knowledge is to disseminate knowledge (open source) from scholars and to enhance the scholarship of teaching and learning through a rigorous double-blind peer-review of pedagogical practice. The journal achieves this through a unique and innovative journal format: scholars submit screencasts (3-8 minutes) of an academic topic that is reviewed for publication as Knowledge Modules. Online pedagogical content is created and vetted by professors through the double-blind peer-review process. By reviewing both content and delivery, the journal seeks to bring the same rigour to teaching practice that is typically reserved for academic research. Students access a credible online knowledge source, approved by professors, that is easily accessible and matches learning styles. CJOK replaces Wikipedia, blogs, magazines, etc. as an academic source and augments lectures, textbooks, etc. as the first peer-reviewed screencast knowledge dissemination journal.

The double-blind peer-review system is an essential aspect of the publication process of Knowledge Modules. Through the review process, the Cascade Journal of Knowledge is:
  1. Ensuring the quality of the Knowledge Modules' content and pedagogy;
  2. Encouraging scholars to improve their teaching practices;
  3. Extending scholars' sphere of influence;
  4. Documenting teaching excellence as a peer-reviewed journal publication; and
  5. Contributing to the scholarship of teaching and learning.
