Education researchers seek to collaborate via new media


The Ontario Educational Research Organization (AERO) is working with a government group (Ontario Educational Research Panel) to coordinate resources and build virtual spaces for education researchers to collaborate. The hope is to use new communication tools, including Twitter, to facilitate networking.

Chris Conley has set up @ResearchChat to “support educational researchers by posting events and resources and networking,” and asks whether any similar groups would like to coordinate resources.

Chris envisions educational research discussions akin to #educhat and #journchat and would like to hear from interested researchers or organizations. (For example, many people contributed to the #AERA Twitter stream at the recent annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association).

Chris says, “the possibility for international discussions are pretty exciting and could lead to some interesting collaborations in educational research.” I agree.
