The Problem with, "Show Me the Research" Thinking

The Problem with, "Show Me the Research" Thinking | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it
Most studies in education are observational studies. This means that investigators pore over data previously collected by others. They seek correlations between different variables. This approach is far less expensive than other methodologies because it is easier and faster. With research budgets stretched thin, cost is a major consideration. The trouble is that observational studies are subject to biases that sometimes make the results unreliable. If results can't be replicated b

Not all the options are created equal, though. Whatever the reason you need to take down notes, these are the best tools to do the job.

25 Ways to Develop a Growth Mindset

25 Ways to Develop a Growth Mindset | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it
What if your true learning potential was unknown, even unknowable, at best? What if it were impossible to foresee what you could accomplish with a few years of passion, toil, and training? According to Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, this isn’t some hypothetical situation, dependent on any manner of factors from genes to environment. It’s a mindset. And it’s one you can cultivate at any point in life.

A “growth mindset,” as Dweck calls it, is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a tendency to believe that you can grow. In her book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, she explains that while a “fixed mindset” assumes that our character, intelligence, and creative ability are static givens which we can’t change in any meaningful way, a growth mindset thrives on challenge and sees failure “not as evidence of unintelligence but as a heartening springboard for growth and for stretching our existing abilities.”

She writes:

“Believing that your qualities are carved in stone creates an urgency to prove yourself over and over. If you have only a certain amount of intelligence, a certain personality, and a certain moral character, well then you’d better prove that you have a healthy dose of them. It simply wouldn’t do to look or feel deficient in these most basic characteristics.”

"The chance to scrap the entire academic research funding and publishing system and rebuild it from scratch is a fantasy that many a frustrated scholar will have had at some point in their career. But an idea currently in development could soon make that fantasy a reality.  

 

"Octopus, an open-access online platform, will allow individuals to share research at every stage of their working, from initial hypothesis to data and real-world application, eradicating – according to its founder – the need for traditional scientific papers."

Multiscale impact of researcher mobility

International mobility facilitates the exchange of scientific, institutional and cultural knowledge. Yet whether globalization and advances in virtual communication technologies have altered the impact of researcher mobility is a relevant and open question that we address by analysing a broad international set of 26 170 physicists from 1980 to 2009, focusing on the 10-year period centred around each mobility event to assess the impact of mobility on research outcomes. We account for secular globalization trends by splitting the analysis into three periods, measuring for each period the effect of mobility on researchers' citation impact, research topic diversity, collaboration networks and geographical coordination. In order to identify causal effects we leverage statistical matching methods that pair mobile researchers with non-mobile researchers that are similar in research profile attributes prior the mobility event. We find that mobile researchers gain up to a 17% increase in citations relative to their non-mobile counterparts, which can be explained by the simultaneous increase in their diversity of co-authors, topics and geographical coordination in the period immediately following migration. Nevertheless, we also observe that researcher's completely curtail prior collaborations with their source country in 11% of the cross-border mobility events. As such, these individual-level perturbations fuel multiscale churning in scientific networks, e.g. rewiring the connectivity of individuals and ideas and affecting international integration. Together these results provide additional clarity on the complex relationship between human capital mobility and the dynamics of social capital investment, with implications for immigration and national innovation system policy.

5 tips to analyze and organize Curated eLearning Content

5 tips to analyze and organize Curated eLearning Content | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it

If you’ve ever walked into a bookshop, library, or music store, then you’re already familiar with information overload. Access to all that data can be exciting, especially for knowledge-thirsty learners. But it can also be overwhelming, because you don’t quite know where to start. Content curation follows these same principles. You have these nuggets of data. However, unless it’s carefully arranged, it’s useless to your online learners. They need a quick, easy, intuitive system to help them wade through the data and make sense of it all. There are many ways to arrange supplementary online training materials. You could use alphabetical order, chronological listing, or group them according to the type of medium. Here are 5 top tips to help you analyze and organize curated eLearning content for your eLearning course.
