Formulating Research Questions and Designing Studies

In this workshop, participants will brainstorm research ideas, write, and refine a measurable research question. They will discuss when IRB approval is required for their study. The basics of research design will be discussed and applied to their selected research question.

Participants will be able to:

  • Write a FINER (feasible, interesting, novel, ethical, relevant) educational research question;
  • Specify an educational research area of interest;
  • Evaluate whether they need IRB approval for their study;
  • Select the correct design for their research question.
