Joining Evidence-Based Innovations with Evidence-Based Dissemination
Dearing, James W.
Metropolitan Universities, v17 n4 p92-94 2006
One of the benefits of an applied research funding program such as those within the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Education and Human Resources is the reading and referencing across fields of study and application of ideas from diverse literatures for common social good such as STEM teaching and learning. This benefit resonates across the articles in this issue of "Metropolitan Universities". Chemists learn from education scholars and medical educators. Physicists learn from chemists and math education researchers. Education scholars learn from management scientists. Communication scientists learn from sociologists and cognitive psychologists. While specialists routinely build upon the work of others within their specialty, the present collection of articles reflects interdisciplinary sharing to a commendable degree.
