Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Educational Research. Final Report.
Grotelueschen, Arden D.
A year of postdoctoral study included work in research methodology and in adult learning and instruction. Knowledge of research methodology was improved by course work in mathematics, mathematical statistics, experimental design, psychological scaling, logical, and philosophy of science. This knowledge was applied in the design of several studies of methods of teaching adults. Another activity was writing two proposals--one for the training of educational researchers, and another for the inservice professional training of adult education researchers. The postdoctoral year was felt to be a successful experience, primarily because of the attitude of the host institution and also because of previous intensive study of college mathematics. (RT)
