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
