How Deductive Thinking Can Drive Student-Designed Research

Many of us sincerely wish students would follow their passions, but many of them, especially the younger ones, sincerely don’t know what that is. When we ask them, “What interests you?” and they respond, “I don’t know,” they aren’t being disingenuous or stubborn. The enormity and vagueness of the question after they’ve been conditioned to provide “right” or “correct” answers sets them up for fear and a blank brain.

Below are strategies I teach teachers when they want to encourage student-led research and they are willing to slow down the process to make the early steps visible.

Promoting Academic Integrity: Are We Doing Enough?

Maryellen Weimer, PhD:

‘Could it be that in our efforts to prevent cheating we have failed to also promote academic integrity? Another study found that students understood they weren’t supposed to plagiarize, but they weren’t sure why. These students avoided plagiarizing so they wouldn’t get in trouble with the teacher, not because they really understood what it was or why it was a problem.”

 I agree that addressing personal integrity is a powerful element in the complex mix of understanding plagiarism and cheating. 

However, without information literacy (let alone fluency) students simply can’t cope in the online environment.  For me the foundation is built on understanding ethical use of digital information.
