Workshop Instructions

Why?

Beginning with principles of educational research, methods for validating effectiveness of teaching/learning in three different venues will be explored.  These include specific teaching/learning practices, course design and delivery, and degree programs.  Added value from quantitative and qualitative methods will be outlined along with applications for mixed methods studies.  Building from this foundation, strategies for acquiring evidence of educational effectiveness of Process Education theory (in classrooms, courses, and programs) will be examined.  The ultimate goal of the workshop is to convene a working group for advancing scholarship surrounding teaching/learning methods that advance personal/professional development contained the Profile of the Collegiate Learner.

Learning Objectives

  1. Achieve shared understanding about the role and distinction between Assessment, Evaluation, and Measurement in Educational Research
  2. Motivate participants to understand and use innovative statistical models in classroom research
  3. Establish synergy among PE practitioners in further developing the Book of Measures as a tool for investigating the efficacy of Process Education.
