Description:

Could you improve the kinds of research you are doing?  Your chances of getting published?  Your impact on the real world?

Dr. Reigeluth will discuss a variety of topics that may help you to answer these questions, which may be crucial to the success of your career.

  • Different purposes for your research (e.g., to improve practice or to advance theory),
  • Different kinds of knowledge you may want to produce for each purpose (descriptive theory or design theory) and the appropriate forms of such knowledge (e.g., conditional and probabilistic),
  •  Different kinds of research methods for producing each kind of knowledge (research to prove or research to improve – confirmatory or exploratory),
  •  When in the history of a given focus area each kind of research method is most useful,
  • Different methodological issues for each kind of research (e.g., validity or preferability),
  • Specific methods you might find helpful (e.g., design-based research, formative research, grounded theory development).

This discussion will focus on highly practical issues for improving the research you do – ones that you likely have not encountered in research courses or projects.
