Educational Research and Methods
This is an evidence-based practice paper, intended to share a range of experiences managing data collection across multiple sites and offer recommendations for success. To address some of the broadest and most critical research questions, engineering education researchers are proposing more and more studies of engineering students, faculty, and/or administrators at multiple higher education institutions. Although some information about how to solicit participation from these institutions is shared through papers and presentations disseminating the activities, most of the best practices and accumulated wisdom about how to manage data collection across multiple sites is not widely shared. To remedy this, the authors synthesize their many years' experience coordinating data collection for engineering education research projects and address site selection, local contacts, recruiting, collaboration agreements, and IRB coordination.
