Course Overview

In this second of a three-part sequence of intensive guided study courses (in classroom and field experience), Guided Studies (II): Research (PEN 802), students advance their knowledge and critical analysis of the scientific process through active participation in and completion of a small research project. The course will involve a field experience assignment in a PEN lab at Gallaudet. The student will be further assigned to a subset of previously collected data from the lab on which students will be trained to analyze. The hands-on experience will involve the writing of a final research report in APA Journal Article format that includes articulation of the central question in Educational Neuroscience that the lab’s study addresses (including theoretical significance, rationale, hypotheses, related predictions), the design of the mini study using the already collected data, articulation of the methods, data analyses, and findings, and discussion of the scientific and translational implications. This field experience will also include the student’s writing of an IRB application, as well as a final presentation. In addition, both the written and presentation components will also constitute the student’s Qualifying Examinations, which are scheduled separately at the end of this course with the student’s PEN PhD Program Committee. After successful completion of Qualifying Examination, the student may petition to advance to candidacy in this program.
