Research Summit - Part 2: Leveraging Research To Advance Scholarship and Practice
Concurrent Session 2
How can we leverage the latest digital, blended, and online learning research in our scholarship and practice? Join fellow researchers and practitioners as we further examine emerging research and apply trends to advancing both scholarship and practice.
Engaging with emerging research is foundational to the work we do as researchers and practitioners in the education space. During this session participants will have the opportunity to further explore the trends raised in the first session “The Great Online Migration: Lessons Learned from Online Learning Journal Researchers” and other trends that are emerging in the field. This session will begin quick overview of research trends and proceed with participants joining one of two breakout rooms:
Advancing Research, facilitated by Patsy Moskal (Director of Digital Learning Impact Evaluation, University of Central Florida), will provide researchers from all experience levels and methodological backgrounds the space to reflect on current trends, discuss where research needs to go next, and share findings from their work.
Advancing Practice, facilitated by Dylan Barth (Senior Teaching, Learning, and Technology Consultant, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee), will provide practitioners from all experience levels the space to reflect on how research can guide practice and share how they are leveraging research in the work they do as they design, develop, and facilitate courses and instructional development opportunities.
Be sure to join us for this exciting session where you can reflect with others in the community around how we can use current research to advance scholarship and practice!
