Hello Everyone- Welcome to Week #3 of ADE 689! Thank you for a terrific discussion during Week #2. I really appreciated our conversation about research ethics and ethical considerations. This week we will turn our attention to quantitative research, which involves the use of statistics. I posted a few videos in the Week #3 folder about quantitative research- one to make you laugh and the others to make you think. We will discuss issues related to qualitative research in our Week #3 discussion. The discussion First Posts are due by 5pm this evening, and the follow-up discussion will run from 5pm Monday-10pm Wednesday. Quiz #1 was due on Saturday. It covered research ethics and APA style. APA style will be strictly enforced in this course, and you will need to use it for your comprehensive exam. I think many of you are preparing to take the exam either this semester or next semester. (This semester's question will be been posted in the ADE Majors site on Blackboard on September 16.) Quiz #2 is due on Saturday. This quiz will cover the readings and discussion work due this week. I have office hours this week on Tuesday from 8am-9am and on Wednesday from 8am-12pm. Please feel free to stop in to see me, call or send an e-mail. Please contact me if you'd like to arrange a time to meet outside of my weekly office hours. Thanks again for a great Week #2. I look forward to our discussion this week. Take care!

Hello Everyone! Welcome to ADE 689: Methods and Techniques of Educational Research. I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with you all this semester. Many of you I have had the pleasure of working with before, and I am thrilled to have the chance to work with some of you for the first time. Thank you for a great Week #1. I enjoyed getting to know you all on the Introduction discussion board, and I appreciated reading your personal journals and computer/data back-up plans. Now that we are in Week #2, we are getting into some of the really important content of research and research methods. I always start the course with a discussion of research ethics, as I think it is the most important topic to consider before creating a study. Our discussion this week is on an altered schedule, due to the Labor Day holiday (Tuesday-Thursday). You have Quiz #1 due on Saturday. Next week we will begin studying statistics. I know it is not everyone's favorite topic, but I promise to make it as interesting and as painless, as possible! As you know, you can contact me any time through the "Ask the Instructor" discussion board, or through the Blackboard "Send Mail" tool. I will not have office hours tomorrow (Wednesday, September 4). My office hours for the rest of the semester will be on a slightly altered schedule, as follows: Tuesdays 8am-9am, Wednesdays 8am-12 noon. If those times do not work for you, please e-mail me and we can set up an alternative time to meet in person, talk on the phone or connect via Facetime. I hope you have a wonderful week! Take care.
This is a tape recording of an interview that I did with my maternal grandfather 30 years ago, asking him to tell us the story of our family. I was thirteen at the time - and I guess in a way I was doing a podcast even before podcasts were invented! The family gathered round one evening just before Christmas 1976 and I taped the story that my grandfather told. This is the last and only recording we have of his voice as he died a year later so it is a recording that is treasured in our family.
