Are you interested in sharing about transformative changes you have made in your teaching? Would you like to share your innovative approach to a well-known difficult topic in your discipline? Or would you like to communicate interesting patterns in student thinking about a particular concept that could be informative? If you are interested in conducting classroom-based research but don’t know where to start, we will discuss the methodologies and tools that you need in order to get started.

This workshop is geared toward 1) individuals who are interested in starting education research but are approaching it for the first time in their own classrooms, or 2) individuals who are currently teaching and would like input on how to use evidence of student thinking patterns from their own classrooms to improve their instructional practices.
