Members of RESET team participate in a workshop on applying mixed methods and qualitative research in Social Sciences at UVA

Researchers of the RESET team at the University of Valladolid have sponsored and participated in a workshop offered by Jennifer Greene (University of Illinois, USA, see http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jennifer_Greene4), an expert in applying mixed methods evaluation to human environments of rich social interaction, notably education. The workshop sessions, held in October 19-22, discussed how to plan and develop educational research that integrate mixed methods. She discussed and analyzed the diversity of methodological strategies, techniques and tools for research. Besides attending the workshop, some of the RESET researchers also had the opportunity to discuss in a private meeting the challenges of performing evaluations in context-aware ubiquitous learning environment, and the difficulties of this approach in large scale learning systems.
