Research Method Webinars

The committee of methodologists offer research design webinars to enhance the researchers’ research method and design understandings and skills. Webinars focus on various research designs, provide overviews about the designs, discuss when and how to use the designs, and offer opportunity for the participants to ask questions and share their design issues. We would like to encourage you to participate in the following research design monthly webinars offered by Research Methodology Group. The webinars are offered to all UOPX researchers including students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Disclaimer for Students: Best practices within a method can differ and these differences are often illuminated by the constraints of a research project or trend in the field. Materials presented in the webinars may differ from materials presented in your classroom. Information presented are views of the methodologist based on their experience and expertise. Work with your chair to determine the best method for your project.

We would like to invite both faculty and students to join our special Webinar session entitled “An Introduction to Decision-based Learning,” offered by Dr. Kenneth Plummer and his colleagues at Brigham Young University (BYU).

Decision-based Learning (DBL), a teaching methodology developed by researchers at BYU, organizes instruction around the decision-making process experts engage in while tackling real-world problems. Students taught using this approach have shown a higher degree of practical or functional abilities than what you find in traditional courses. To further learn about DBL you may see this brief video.
