Office of Educational Research Bulletin (ORB)


News & Notes


As the end of the 2008-09 academic year
approaches, there is little doubt that we
will look back upon the past 9 months
and immediately recall the fiscal crisis
and potential reduction in recurring
state funding. Nonetheless, it is
important not to overlook the many
good things that occurred this year in
the College of Education.

For example, in addition to the high
volume of scholarly publications and
presentations by faculty and students,
50 proposals for external funding were
submitted through the Office of
Educational Research (OER). Fifteen of
those proposals were funded for a total
exceeding $5,500,000 in new external
funding. In addition to the success of
our faculty in garnering much needed
external resources, this past year OER
sponsored a number of faculty
workshops, brown bags, and research
training sessions, including the
upcoming all-day workshop on using
the NVivo qualitative data analysis
software. The College also hosted a
highly regarded speaker series that
brought in such well known scholars as
Dorothy Becvar, Peg Tyre, and James
Gee to meet with faculty and students
and to present on such important and


diverse topics as death education, the
scholastic underachievement of boys,
and discourse analysis and computer
gaming. The speaker series was a
tremendous success that contributed to
the stimulating intellectual climate of
the College.

As you may know, over the summer,
the first floor of Norman Hall will
undergo an extensive renovation, the
goal of which is to create an integrated
research hub, with OER, the newly
formed Collaborative Assessment and
Program Evaluation Services (CAPES)
office, and Research & Evaluation
Methodology faculty in close proximity.
Beginning in the Fall 2009 semester, the
OER will begin working with the
Research Advisory Committee of the
Faculty Policy Council to identify
optimal ways of using existing and new
resources to support the research
mission of College faculty and students.

While this has been a difficult year, we
look forward to the challenge of
building upon our many strengths to
meet the research, teaching, and service
mission of the College. See you next
year!
