This semester I am teaching a new course for doctoral students called IDT 8600: Seminar in IDT Research.  This course is targeted, though, at students from across curriculum and instruction.  (Currently, this course is closed and password protected. But if you’d like to take a peek, let me know.  I’ll see what I can do.)

The purpose of the course is three-fold:

  1. Students will read and critique educational research.
  2. Students will explore educational research with faculty members and advanced students.
  3. Students will conduct educational research collaboratively.

To facilitate all three of these goals, I have created a new Diigo group for students to share bookmarks.  You can join the group (it’s open to anyone) at We will also be using Mendeley to share references as we collaboratively conduct research.


In addition to the collaborative research we will be conducting about mobile teaching and learning, faculty members from across our department of curriculum and instruction will pop in to share their research interests and how students can engage in research.  And to get a “voice from the experts,” I’ve asked some students to come in and share their experiences as novice researchers.  I’m really looking forward to the experience.
