International Journal of Lesson and Learning Studies

The International Journal for Lesson and Learning Studies (IJLLS) is the official journal of the World Association of Lesson Studies (WALS). The journal is dedicated to publishing educational research that focuses directly on improving the quality of learning in classrooms and other formal learning environments through pedagogical experiments or action research. IJLLS rests on the conviction that there is a need for a journal that will promote an evidence-based and rigorous pedagogical discourse in the field of education about how to improve the quality of young people's experiences as learners in educational settings.

The Chief Editor is Professor John Elliot, CARE and Co Editor Professor Lo Mun Ling, Hong Kong Institute of Education, Hong Kong. Miriam McGregor is the editorial assistant. There are three issues per year.  The Journal was launched at the WALS conference in Tokyo, November 2011. John is also on the Editorial Board Journal of Research, Policy & Practice of Teachers and Teacher Education, Advising Assessor INDICE and on the Scientific Committee of  Profile Journal.
