Qualitative and quantitative research methods

META-ANALYSIS

1 September 2016

Meta-analysis is a set of statistical methods used to review results from studies using quantitative data. Across the past 40 years, meta-analyses have become increasingly popular as a way of reviewing research in the behavioural sciences, including education; they provide a “bird’s-eye view” of the body of evidence, and usually help to identify important sources of variance in results, including, for example, boundary conditions. This seminar provides an introduction to how a meta-analysis is conducted and written up.

  • Speaker: Paul Ginns is a senior lecturer in educational psychology at the Sydney School of Education and Social Work. His research has two broad foci:

    • Applying theories from cognitive science and embodied cognition to
      instructional design. This research program involves drawing on
      models of the human cognitive architecture (consisting of a limited
      working memory which can be circumvented for learning and problem
      solving by the long-term memory store) to maximise the effectiveness
      and efficiency of learning, through appropriate management of cognitive load. Paul
      has published widely in this field, including both original research, and
      meta-analytic reviews of specific instructional design effects.

    • Investigating the systemic relations between students’ approaches to – and
      engagement in – learning; their perceptions of the teaching and learning
      environment; and subsequent learning outcomes. The ultimate goal of this
      research program is to design a constructive alignment of the teaching-
      and-learning system.
