The importance of intermediation between communities primarily engaged in research
production and those primarily engaged in practice is increasingly acknowledged, yet our
understanding of the nature and influence of this work in education remains limited.
Accordingly, in this study we utilized case study methodology, aspiring to understand the
activities and signature product of a particularly influential mediator of current educational
research, news, and ideas. We also examined its professional contribution as perceived by
educators who experienced it. Data analyses suggest that subscribers greatly appreciate several
aspects of the product, which was found to draw from a wide range of source material that varied
in terms of its research centeredness and its practical implications.
