1. Participants will be able to summarize the current state of research focusing on the Noyce program
2. Participants will be able to articulate a proposed research agenda for the Noyce program
3. Participants will be able to articulate gaps in the literature pertaining to the Noyce program.
Our content will be grounded in review of the supporting literature, frameworks, and methods used in prior Noyce research. We will also draw upon data and results from our ongoing research on our Noyce program at Texas Tech University.
This proposed 30 minute workshop will present participants with systematic review of research conducted with Noyce fellows and scholars, with a particular focus on factors related to teacher retention during and after the Noyce scholarship, as well as how this research is reflected or challenged in the broader teacher education research community. We will present results from our ongoing research on Noyce teacher retention, and offer workshop participants the opportunity to consider how their research can contribute to the identified gaps in the literature.
Research reviewed will include all peer-reviewed research that included participants who are affiliated in some way with the Noyce program. Given the largely qualitative nature of this research, a systematic review approach will be used rather than a meta-analysis.
The schedule of the workshop will be as follows:
1. Introductions (2 minutes)
2. Presentation of research synthesis (10 minutes)
a. Synthesis of research directly pertaining to the Noyce program
b. Connections to evidence base in teacher education and retention more broadly
c. Establishing gaps in the evidence base
3. Our research agenda (5 minutes)
a. What have we learned from our previous Noyce grants?
i. Presentation of retention survey results
ii. Presentation of scaled developed by Stevens and Dwyer
b. Innovations in our new Noyce grant and associated research activities
c. Methods for data collection
4. Discussion Prompt (5 minutes)
a. What are the pressing questions in this field of research?
b. How can you address those in your context?
5. Q & A (5 minutes)
