SITE 2021 Q Methodology Workshop

SITE Conference 2021: Workshop on Q Methodology


It was fun to join my research colleagues David Rutledge, Arlene Borthwick, and Brandy Walker to host a workshop at the SITE 2021 conference in March. The workshop was titled "Q Methodology as a Research Tool for Technology Infusion", and focused on how researchers could use Q methodology to investigate perspectives on the challenges facing technology integration and infusion.

The virtual workshop included use of a variety of digital tools like Jamboard, and Forms to engage participants and do some comparisons between Q methodology and traditional quantitative analysis.

Virtual & Distance Education License addition update

Work on the Virtual and Distance Education License addition is moving forward.

Program materials are making their way through the university governance structure.The University Professional Education Committee voted to approve the license addition in July. Program faculty worked to revise course syllabi, and the program application was submitted to the Indiana State Department of Education in August.

In September I presented to the State INPREP Committee about the proposed Virtual and Distance Education license. They provided us with written feedback that helped us improve the proposal. In October we submitted our revised proposal to the INPREP committee and they recommended our proposal for final approval in early November.

On December 9, 2020, the Indiana State Board of Education approved our proposal!

During this same time we also put materials forward through the University governance structure for a Graduate Certificate in Virtual and Distance Education. This certificate program is similar to the license program but is focused on educators who are outside of Indiana. The Graduate Education Committee approved the certificate in February 2021.

With approval of both the license addition and graduate certificate we have now developed program information websites so that students can begin applying for the programs.
