The Educational Research Methods group is a SIG of AaeE. 


We encourage everyone to get involved in discussion on this page and through our sessions at the annual AaeE conference.

Check the AaeE conference page for the papers from the  conference.


At the 2010 conference in Sydney, this SIG ran ERM sessions around the theme of Evaluatng Learning and Teaching. There was a workshop, an invited paper session and lots of papers from members. There was also planning an ERM breakfast on the Tuesday morning. 


Information on Useful Research Methods in Engineering Education:


Here you can see the notes from a workshop held in Toowoomba. The powerpoint presentation is here. The participants asked for a glossary so I'm putting up one I've used with engineering postgards in the past. Please feel free to add to or contradict these offerings!


If you'd like to improve your knowledge of a particular research method in intensive short courses, check out the ACSPRI pages.  They run summer schools in Canberra and winter schools in Queensland with occasional special workshops and conferences. Most Australian universities are members of the consortium.

In 2010 we ran workshops on Evaluation Research and Engineering Education.


The workshops were intended to help academics set up systematic ongoing data gathering and plan evaluations that can be used effectively in tenure and promotion rounds, in influencing policy and in generating research papers.


You can see the powerpoint slides here. There are also some blank matrices to play with here.


And the bibliography here.


Some of you may also be intersted in a new workshop for beginners to the area of educational research. You can find the slides here.

During that workshop there is heavy emphasis on increasing productivity through collaboration using techniques such as writing circles. You'll find some advice about organising a writing circle here.
