Translational research?

Clark Quinn

So, one of the things that a few people do is translate research to practice. They’re also practitioners, designing or consulting on solutions, but they can read research in untranslated academese and make sense of it. However, they also say “occupies a conceptual space between basic research and applied research” Wait, I thought that was applied research! The post Translational research?

Theory or Research?

Clark Quinn

My answer to theory or research is theory. Most research experiments are done in the context of a theoretical framework. Researchers tend to run experiments driven by a theory. If I were in a research setting, I’d be conducting experiments on engagement (pushing beyond ARCS) to test my own theories of what makes experiences as engaging and effective.

10 Minutes of Motivation Research

Experiencing eLearning

Daniel Pink shared this animated whiteboard video explaining some of the research and ideas from his book Drive. The research Pink shares in his book reinforces the idea of lifelong learning. Pink’s ideas have been applied to learning by others, but the basic idea is that for all but the simplest tasks, people aren’t motivated well by big monetary rewards. What rewards people is autonomy, mastery, and purpose. This, of course, has implications for instructional design.

What Research Tells Us About Chunking Content

Patti Shank

Research by usability experts Nielsen Norman Group tells us that people prefer content that is logically divided or chunked. They define chunking as breaking up content into smaller, distinct units of information (chunks), as shown in the right column of Figure 1. This is as opposed to presenting content in homogeneous blocks like in the left column of Figure 1. Chunking doesn’t mean simply breaking up text into smaller pieces.
