Nworie, John
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v55 n5 p24-30 Sep 2011
As educational technology practitioners and researchers engage in research in the field, a wide array of research methodologies are available to them. One such methodology is the Delphi Technique. Use of the Delphi Technique offers many benefits, including the ability to obtain expert opinion, build consensus, determine the suitability of the application of instructional interventions, forecast trends, and interact with research subjects without being limited by time and space. While the origin and early use of the Delphi Technique was in the business setting, it has been used in other environments over the years, including educational settings. The various intrinsic qualities of the methodology could be beneficial to the field of educational technology. This article examines the Delphi Technique, its benefits, and how it could benefit educational technology researchers.
