Free ticketed event
Participants will learn about databases for conducting research in engineering education that may include Engineering Village, Eric, Psycinfo, and Google Scholar. The session will focus on quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-method studies. Participants can bring in their own research questions or select from an available pool of questions. Activities will include hands-on review strategies, the selection of appropriate method(s) based on the selected research questions.
