We often hear jokes in higher education about writing and publishing papers that no one will read. As scholars, we chase citations and as practitioners we work hard to find our place within the community of scholarly inquiry. It shouldn’t have to be this way. With DETA, we aim to break the barriers of traditional scholarly research to provide useful, accessible, and valid research that can be used to improve teaching, care for students, inform design practice, and drive administrative decision-making.
Listed here on this site are multiple ways that you can contribute to this community of educators, practitioners, and change agents.
Share findings and practices from your institution as research stories, briefs and publications
Perform participatory research at your institution as a partner
Contribute to and edit the research collections
Research shouldn’t be written and not read. Rather, talented scholars and practitioners should come together to make sense of the vast libraries of education research, and leverage that knowledge to improve practice and surface new questions to be answered.
