Professional Scholarship in Educational Technology: Criteria for Judging Inquiry.
Schwen, Thomas M.
An attempt to establish criteria to judge scholarly activities in the field of educational technology focused on skills of inquiry, a process which includes problem definition, hypothesis formation, and hypothesis verification. To be judged adequate such inquiry should be: (1) publicly verifiable; (2) disciplined; (3) generalizable; (4) based on a conceptual structure or theoretical framework; (5) directed towards the extension of knowledge; (6) a demonstration of a comprehensive search; (7) a creative exploration; and (8) sensible. This report describes the need for such criteria, defines each criterion, and explains the implications for adopting the set of criteria. (EMH)
