ascilite Live! Webinar: Quantitative design and analysis for technology-enhanced learning research

Date and Time
Friday, 6 September 2013 at 1pm AEST and 3pm NZ. For additional time zones, visit the date/time website

This webinar will focus on quantitative methods for evaluating the effectiveness of technology-enhanced learning innovation. The most critical factor for successful quantitative research is appropriate research design and managing the delicate balance between rigour and relevance.

As a starting point, the development of appropriate research questions and operationalisation of variables will be explored. The range of quantitative designs will then be discussed as will the benefits and pitfalls of each. Some time will then be devoted to the ways of collecting and analysing quantitative data. It will be assumed that participants have little to no experience in quantitative research methods and the webinar will therefore not involve any advanced design methodology or inferential statistics.

Jason Lodge, PhD is a psychological scientist and lecturer in technology-enhanced learning at Griffith University, Brisbane. Jason’s research concentrates on the application of the learning sciences to education. Specifically, he is interested in the cognitive and emotional factors that influence learning and behaviour and how research findings from the learning sciences can be better used to enhance instructional design, teaching practice and education policy.

Jason is also interested in the ways technology is influencing learning, particularly in terms of the impact of technology on the development of metacognition, critical thinking and expertise. He has ten years of experience in research design and analysis in psychology and education.
