When I Think of Research...


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.

I guess we both felt this class to be challenging and rewarding. It was a struggle for me, but we made it!!! I enjoyed reading your blogs/discussion posts and I was happy to hear your insights and read your responses. Good luck in the future!!!!

Christine,
You made the comment that this course was “out of your comfort zone”. I could not agree more! Although rewarding, I had a high level of stress throughout the class. Research is a complex and involved process. I also have a new respect for researchers. Good luck during your master’s program at Walden and thank you for your support in this class.
