Call for Proposals: “Research Methods in Learning Design and Technology”

Title of this edited volume: “Research Methods in Learning Design and Technology”
There are already several confirmed book chapters but I am looking to include five or six additional chapters to the book.

Introduction and Objectives:

This edited volume serves to combine knowledge related to research methodologies in the instructional design and technology (IDT) field. It will address questions such as: How has our research methodologies evolve? What are the methodologies that can be used to investigate traditional and new research environments? How can we apply innovative research methodologies to address questions related to learning, design, and technology? This edited volume will provide IDT scholars with a solid foundation of the different methods that can be taken to investigate a research problem. This knowledge aids researchers in the understanding of the rationale for the application of specific procedures or techniques used to identify, select, process, and analyze information applied to understand a research question.

The objectives of this book are to:

  • Present a historical overview of how different methodologies have adapted to the new and changing learning environments

  • Illustrate how different methodologies can be used to investigate topics related to IDT

  • Explore benefits and drawbacks to different types of research methodologies in research related to the IDT research

  • Discuss the future of research methodologies in the IDT field


Proposal Submission Deadline: March 1, 2019

Full Chapters Due: August 30, 2019

This publication is anticipated to be released in 2020.
