Dr Jennifer Pei-Ling Tan, Research Scientist from the Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice (CRPP) at OER, conducted three training professional development workshops for Technologies for Learning (TfL) officers from the Ministry of Education’s (MOE) Educational Technology Division (ETD). The 35 TfL officers who attended the workshops were trained on the various approaches to measuring and characterizing the impact of TfL innovation projects.
The workshops which took place on 14 Jan 2016, 28 Jan 2016 and 11 Feb 2016, aimed to foster professional dialogues and learning about research approaches for documenting and evaluating the impact of TfL innovation projects in schools. The purpose is to equip participants with a purposefully selected range of mixed methods and to facilitate participants’ critical evaluation of these methods. With a practical focus in mind, the participants were taught to design interviews and focus group discussions and were equipped with content analysis skills for analyzing the data collected.
