  • Perspectives on “Creating Education”

  • Educational Research

    • Realms

    • Aspects

    • Action Research

    • Publishing Research Results

VMG elements of some TEIs

  • Through relevant researches, utilize research findings to improve curriculum and instruction, and brings about informed and research-oriented teachers in the future (BUCE).

  • Be a constructor of knowledge.....Be a change agent....Bridge the gap between experience and knowledge and encourage questioning minds. (UPCE).

  • ....nurturing innovative teachers and education leaders (PNU).

Three Ways of Creating EducationMICHAEL BASSEY, Faculty of Education, Nottingham Polytechnic


Three Realms of Research in Education

Two Categories of Research Workers

Four Critical Aspects of EducationLemke and Sabelli

Action ResearchNSW, Australia, 2010

  • the term which describes the integration of action (implementing a plan) with research (developing an understanding of the effectiveness of this implementation).

Academic or Formal Research VS Action Research

Academic or Formal Research VS Action Research

The Proper Perspective on ResearchJeffrey R. Henig, EL 2008

  • No single research study can ever provide the kind of definitive and universal answers that policymakers and citizens seem to yearn for.

  • Reason why this is so.....

    • fundamental limitations of data;

      • measures, no matter how precise, are always one step or more removed from the concepts that we really are interested in

The Proper Perspective on ResearchJeffrey R. Henig, EL 2008

  • Although individual studies cannot carry the weight of contemporary expectations, research as a collective enterprise......can enrich our knowledge base.

    • comprising multiple studies,

    • attacking questions from differing angles, and exposed to the checks and balance of studies in differing settings and

    • using differing methodologies

The Proper Perspective on ResearchJeffrey R. Henig, EL 2008

  • But sifting through accumulated studies to discern the weight of the evidence requires at some point the application of judgment.

  • Research can inform decisions but cannot, in itself, displace the need for judgment.

Getting published in a reasonably good journal requires...(Thomas Plumper)

  • a research agenda of general interest,

  • a good idea,

  • methodological skills,

  • a well-developed sense of logic,

  • writing skills

A Good Idea... 4 types of ideas usually published in good journals:

  • an innovative theory

  • a powerful test of an existing theory

  • a methodological innovation

  • a paper which is based on a potentially new data set

Manuscripts get rejected because they

  • make no or a too small contribution,

  • make inconsistent or logically wrong claims

  • offer insufficient, unconvincing, or poor empirical evidence,

  • run counter something the referees have written before,

  • are poorly written and do not sufficiently sell the paper

Selling a Manuscript to Editors, Referees, and Readers

  • Many referees make a first decision while reading the introduction. This is where you have to sell the paper. You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

  • Likewise, editors select referees based on reading of your summary and introduction.

  • Try to steer their decision by citing your friends in the intro and avoid citing your foes in the intro.

The Necessary Content (and Order) of an Introduction

  • 1.Appetizer

  • 2.Argument

  • 3.Summary of Argumentation

  • 4.Brief Summary of Research Design and Major Findings

  • 5.Contribution

The 20 Do’s

  • 1.Conduct research in an established and growing research area.

  • 2.Work on papers that make a contribution.

  • 3.Choose a contribution that maximizes attention.

  • 4.Make sure that your theory has a fair chance of being wrong.

  • 5.Make sure that your theory is consistent and innovative.

The 20 Do’s

  • 6. Choose your empirical field strategically.

  • 7. Minimize the gap between theory and empirical analysis.

  • 8. Demonstrate (as far as possible) the validity of causal and/or observational inferences.

  • 9. Choose the optimal method for your analysis.

  • 10. Write in a simple, illustrative, and lively way.

  • 11. Sell your paper to your reader.

  • 12. Polish your paper, especially the introduction.

  • 13. Stress the contribution of your paper.

  • 14. Cite a few friends and no foes in the introduction.

  • 15. Don’t forget to cite papers published in the journal you intend to submit to.

  • 16. Don’t submit your paper to journals which are not included in the SSCI.

  • 17. Don’t allow rejections to frustrate you.

  • 18. Revise your paper as much as necessary (but with opportunity costs in mind).

  • 19. Don’t argue with the editor.

  • 20. Try to get asap(at least) into the 2-2-2 stream.

  • When you take stuff from one writer it's plagiarism; but when you take it from many writers, it's research.

    • Wilson Wizner

  • Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought.
