Thank you all for your support and contributions to this course. It has definitely been interesting and out of my comfort zone. However, I have learned many new and interesting concepts during the last eight weeks. I learned that developing research studies is a long, but exciting process. I really like the way researchers can turn a question into a study. I have a new respect for early childhood researchers.
Developing my own research simulation was challenging and rewarding. Keeping all the terms and types of research straight has been a difficult. However, my interest in research has definitely been peaked during this course. I am looking forward to actually completing my simulation someday.
I have a new found respect for the concepts I have studied about early childhood because I now understand the research process.
