Developing a Research Identity: Promoting a Research Mindset among Faculty and Students
McEachern, Kirstin P.; Horton, Jessica L.
Educational Forum, v80 n4 p444-456 2016
This article details how the authors, two educators with doctoral degrees, attempt to harmonize their researcher and educator identities and seek to empower their students and fellow teachers as researchers. They describe how their doctoral programs influenced their beliefs about the power of a researcher identity, and they suggest ways educational institutions can support teachers and students in the development of a research mindset.
