Research Ethics in Education
First, I establish requirements to consider and how components must adhere to such requirements. I then use case studies to demonstrate creative ways to work around the tight regulations on working with students in research studies. I will close with a mention of study purpose and how upholding ethics allows researchers to ensure they are helping rather than hurting students.
Gifted & Talented Education
Awareness of gifted students’ hidden challenges and ways in which different subgroups are overlooked are crucial aspects to identifying all gifted students and addressing their unique needs in a comprehensive way. When this awareness is combined with strategies to instil rigor in gifted education (whether this is in advanced courses or in mixed-ability classes) and differentiation aimed at engaging each gifted student, educators are able to best support the “whole” gifted child.
Managing Multiple Research Projects
Prioritization, organization, and effective tools are key components to managing multiple research projects. One does not have to be “techie” to use software to assist management. Using a tool like Excel in simple ways can help researchers track opportunities, project work, funds, and dissemination of findings. These strategies will prevent details from slipping through the cracks, will bring order to a potentially chaotic dynamic, and will help research to be more impactful.
