Strengthening the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning via Experimentation
LoSchiavo, Frank M.; Shatz, Mark A.; Poling, Devereaux A.
Teaching of Psychology, v35 n4 p301-304 Oct 2008
In recent years, national policy experts have questioned the overall quality of educational research, and they have suggested that researchers strengthen their scientific methods by maximizing the use of experimental designs. To promote more rigorous methodology, we discuss several new and often-overlooked opportunities for incorporating experimentation into the scholarship of teaching and learning in psychology. Although experiments can be difficult to conduct in educational settings, our methodological suggestions are particularly well-suited for relatively small-scale studies, like those typically published in "Teaching of Psychology."
