Worum es bei uns geht
Today, the vast majority of published academic research is created collaboratively. The number of papers with (international) collaborators has roughly doubled in the past decade and articles with more co-authors tend to be cited more frequently. Also projects with interdisciplinary research teams are favored by funding agencies.
Therefore, the goal of the Educational Technology Research Network is to increase the amount of collaborative research and resulting knowledge generation. It should allow to tackle broader questions, pool resources, diversify the workforce, more flexibly conduct peer reviews, and permit methods that may require significant upfront investments.
