I’m having a blast with my research methods students as we explore the basics of the scientific inquiry process. Here, in small groups, they’re grappling with the “hypothesis generation — collect data — revise hypothesis — collect more data” process by exploring what’s in the bag without looking inside. Today, we were mucking around in the messy world of experimental design. All teams did a great job taking a first stab at desiging a study. Well done and thanks for your participation!
