Connecting Practice, Theory and Method: Supporting Professional Doctoral Students in Developing Conceptual Frameworks
Kumar, Swapna; Antonenko, Pavlo
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v58 n4 p54-61 Jul 2014
From an instrumental view, conceptual frameworks that are carefully assembled from existing literature in Educational Technology and related disciplines can help students structure all aspects of inquiry. In this article we detail how the development of a conceptual framework that connects theory, practice and method is scaffolded and facilitated in an online doctoral program in Educational Technology. For online professional practice students, conceptual frameworks provide a lens to critically examine experiential knowledge and a solid foundation for the implementation of interdisciplinary research at a distance from their university campus and faculty mentors.
