  14. 14. Research Questions Intentionality What motivations are there for creating and joining a group? Limits How long do collaborative relationships last? ● What are some of the limits to collaboration, are they overcome? ● Do collaborations persist? What are the reasons for and against? ● Do collaborations have limits? Or do they continue, in some form, in perpetuity? ● What were the initial motivations for creating or joining a group? ● Did members join intentionally, or did they just fall into the collaboration? ● What did members hope to gain from such collaboration, and did they achieve their goals?

  18. 18. Research Participants Individuals who: ◎ enrolled in Rhizo14 and/or Rhizo15 ◎ collaborated an extra-curricular research project that was: ○ published in an academic journal ○ published in an non-peer-review venue ○ presented at a conference. ◎ in groups of 2 or more people
  19. 19. Location of potential participants
  20. 20. Analysis ◎ Survey Analysis ○ If mixed methods, quantitative analysis ◎ Thematic Analysis of transcripts ○ Two rounds of individual interviews, ○ maybe a focus group as the third round ◎ Document analysis ○ Participants’ blogs reflecting on collaboration ○ Industry publications written by collaborators
  21. 21. Validity ◎ Multiple coders for transcripts ◎ Member checking ○ Transcript accuracy ○ Interpretation accuracy ○ Peer review of final product ◎ Triangulation
  22. 22. Limitations ◎ Small sample size (it’s OK, it’s a case study) ◎ Not generalizable (that’s fine by me, qualitative studies generally are not) ◎ Group does not appear to be ‘the norm’ of participants in MOOCs (learning something from the “deviants”)
