Sasser, Jennifer R. – Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies, 2017
In this keynote presentation given at the 2016 Association for Interdisciplinary Studies conference, I considered the field of gerontology from a transdisciplinary perspective.

Nieuwenhuis, F. J. – Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, 2015
In his 2014 paper Potgieter presented a number of pertinent questions on education in a post-modern world. In this article I not only challenge some of the views informing these questions but also raise additional questions for debate and critical analysis. Two pertinent issues, both with religious undertones, are addressed, viz.: a) whether the…

Potgieter, Amanda S. – Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, 2015
Research on the transition of students into Academia has previously focused on intelligence and effort as determinants of success. In this article I will argue that the liminal experience of transition into the academic environment is enhanced by multi-logic spaces where curiosity and focus are key attributes of the academic literacy classroom. In…

Boulton, Alex –, 2015
Any research study can only be fully appreciated once it is situated in relation to existing work. This is no mean feat, however, given the sheer quantity and variety of publications to date. Simply relying on one's background and experience as an expert in the field, coupled with a few internet searches and following up individual references, is…

Pogrow, Stanley – National Center on Scaling Up Effective Schools, 2015
There is little discussion in the Design-Based Research (DBR) literature on how to design an intervention that has the potential to be highly effective. The act of designing is usually viewed as engineering something from theory or research on best practices. This paper challenges that universal belief and presents successful design as an…

Barnes, Naomi – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2014
Facebook status updates provided the data for a study into the transition learning experiences of first year university students.

The research referred to here, used…

Roulston, Kathryn – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2014
Qualitative researchers have for some time followed recommendations to analyze both "how" interview data are generated in addition to "what" is discussed. Yet little has been written about the challenges of representing these sorts of analyses. This paper discusses the challenges of presenting methodological analyses of…

Irwin, Rita L. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2013
This article explores moments of becoming a/r/tography. A/r/tography is a research methodology, a creative practice, and a performative pedagogy that lives in the rhizomatic practices of the in-between. Resisting the tendency for endless critique of past experience and bodies of knowledge, a/r/tography is concerned with the creative invention of…

Ozturk, Elif – Online Submission, 2012
The present paper aims to review two motivations to conduct "what if" analyses using Excel and "R" to understand the statistical significance tests through the sample size context. "What if" analyses can be used to teach students what statistical significance tests really do and in applied research either prospectively to estimate what sample size…

Goodwyn, Fara – Online Submission, 2012
Exploratory factor analysis involves five key decisions. The second decision, how many factors to retain, is the focus of the current paper. Extracting too many or too few factors often leads to devastating effects on study results. The advantages and disadvantages of the most effective and/or most utilized strategies to determine the number of…

Contemporary studies in the field of education cannot afford to neglect the ever present interrelationships between power and politics, economics and consumption, representation and identity.

Tallman, Michael A.; Weber, Eric – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2012
In this paper, we problematize an ontological characterization of change within a complex system by illustrating how epistemological premises of interactionist, individualist, and collectivist theoretical perspectives reveal only specific aspects of a changing system. Methodological considerations resulting from our recognition that change is…
