This Preconference Seminar is designed for community college instructors interested in conducting learning-science research in their classrooms and publishing their findings in an academic journal. By the end of the Preconference Seminar, participants have a solid understanding of the steps involved in proposing, conducting, and publishing learning science research. The Preconference Seminar begins with an overview of basic learning-science research using successful examples conducted at community colleges. Participants learn how to develop a compelling proposal, including identifying funding opportunities, selecting a research topic, developing research questions and hypotheses, ethical research methods, applying for IRB approval, choosing an appropriate venue, data collecting and analysis, and publishing results.
