Introduction to Educational Research Workshop

The Center for Educational Resources is pleased to offer Introduction to Educational Research (IER): a two day workshop for Johns Hopkins faculty. The workshop will present best practices used in educational research at Johns Hopkins and peer institutions.

This is a great opportunity for new faculty who are interested in learning about conducting educational research, but is open to any JHU faculty from all academic disciplines.  The course will introduce faculty to the process of generating a research question, designing a study, conducting analysis, and publishing results.
