CIRI Blog Overview
iSchool faculty members have their own blog to share updates on their research projects, innovative ideas for advancing online teaching and learning, experiences with emerging technologies, thoughts on research methods, and whatever else is percolating in their minds. It’s a treasure trove of inspiration and knowledge.
New posts are published monthly. We encourage you to visit the blog often and share your comments.
Most recently, Dr. Shelly Buchanan blogged about her personal research journey since the completion of her PhD thesis titled “The lived experience of middle school student engaged in student-driven inquiry: A phenomenological study”. Read her post on CIRI Blog.
“In my research with middle school students engaged in the Independent Project — a student-governed quarter-long research study on a topic of personal interest designed and implemented by individual learners — I gathered qualitative data on this student learning experience through individual student interviews and identified the affordances and challenges in this work.” – Dr. Shelly Buchanan
