The Scientist-Practitioner: A Boulder Model for Education
Dunn, Karee E.
International Journal of Adult Vocational Education and Technology, v6 n4 Article 5 p40-45 2015
The purpose of the current work is to present a case for the need to train all graduate students in the field of education in quantitative methodology. The premise for this position is that practitioners like researchers benefit from such training. Through an understanding of research design and statistics, teachers, school leaders, counselors, etc. may become scientist-educators who engage in evidence-based practice, engage in strong educator-researcher collaborations, and possibly join the professoriate and prepare the next generation of scientist-educators. The underlying theme of the article is the extension of the Boulder Model from psychology, the scientist-clinician model, to education in order to benefit all educational practitioners and those with whom they work.
