The principal role of the Advisory Board is to drive the overall intellectual direction of The Learner Research Network and to consult on our foundational themes as they evolve along with the currents of the field. Board members are invited to attend the annual conference and provide important insights on conference development, including suggestions for speakers, venues, and special themes. We also encourage board members to submit articles for publication consideration to The Learner Journal Collection as well as proposals or completed manuscripts to The Learner Book Imprint.
