Since I’ve been uploading quite a few presentations this semester from my Developing Interactive Learning Environments and project management course, I’ve also decided to upload a few others to Slideshare.net that I’ve given and created recently. This is a little slow going, because I am attempting to be critical and meticulous to copyrights, as well as respectful of ideas and images, giving credit where appropriate. I’m also systematically adding my Creative Commons licensing to each of the slide decks.
Last fall, I was invited to present to Dr. Sally Blake’s graduate student seminar about using technology to support your research. So, I’m including those slides below. These slides are organized into the phases of research:
- awareness of a field of endeavor
- literature searches and reviews
- citation management
- data collection
- data analysis
Just a sample of the technologies that are mentioned include journal table of contents updates, Delicious, diigo, LinkedIn, Mendeley, EndNote, RefWorks, SPSS, Google Docs Forms, SurveyMonkey, Nvivo, and Atlas.ti. Here are the slides:
Let me know if you have questions or suggestions for other technologies that I can include in the future, particularly ones that you use.
