As some of you may know, many of the SLP Bloggers of the World (official title) have been participating in an undertaking known as Research Tuesday.
The purpose of Research Tuesday is to encourage awareness of current professional research! I know that for me since graduating, I haven’t put much oomph into reading research articles. Which is silly because access to ASHA Journals is part of what I pay ASHA for every year. But there you have it. Unless someone forces me to read an article I am probably not going to. If say, research articles weren’t a thousand years long and full of jargon-y jargon, maybe it wouldn’t be so painful!
SO, as a result of this being the case for everybody in the club, Research Tuesday was founded. “The goal is to increase accountability for reading the research, advocate for reading the research, and improving exposure to research.”
Since my blog is in a current state of transition and lackluster blandness, I decided I would participate. I’m hoping that (a) I’ll learn (and you! You’ll learn!) more about professional topics that I like and (b) I’ll be encouraged to blog more because I’m slacking.
Keep your eyes peeled boys and girls!
