Virtual Gateway Workshop
October 5, 2023
4:00-5:30pm, eastern time
In this interactive, online workshop, we’ll introduce you to fundamental skills in education research. You’ll practice these skills with each other to develop your research ideas and conceptualize a research project.
What do we cover?
- Refining your research interests into answerable research questions.
- Generative writing: how research gets done and papers get written.
- Playing “yes, and” to find collaborators and improve your projects.
Who Should Attend?
PEER targets a broad diversity of experience and interest in discipline-based education research (DBER) and the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). The workshop is appropriate for:
- Faculty not currently engaged in DBER but interested in learning about theories and methodologies for possible future research.
- Current DBER researchers looking to build or broaden their network of collaborators and engage in generative discussions about existing and new projects.
- Graduate students or postdoctoral researchers who want to learn more about DBER project management and building a successful research program
- Faculty at teaching-focused universities interested in using research methodology to improve or assess their teaching and/or publish in Scholarship of Teaching & Learning
How much does it cost?
This virtual workshop is free to attend, but space is limited and a recording will not be made available.
How should I prepare?
- Register in advance.
- Read about writing as a generative process, and prepare to engage in your own writing during the workshop. During the workshop, you’ll do generative writing around your research interests and questions.
- Make sure your zoom software is up-to-date and test your microphone and camera. During the workshop, you’ll work in a collaborative breakout group with other participants.
- Look for a calendar invite with a zoom link.
