Doctoral Research in Instructional Design and Technology: A Directory of Dissertations, 1977-2004 is a compilation of doctoral dissertations completed during the calendar years 1977 through 2004. The directory includes listings of each student's name, graduation year, dissertation title, institution, and chairperson. This list is cross indexed so that the information can be retrieved in a variety of ways.
One key element in the continued development of the field and profession of instructional design and technology is the research being done by graduate students. This directory provides a complete overview of that doctoral research. This new publication is a compilation of two earlier works and new data from the years 1989-2001. The two earlier editions are Doctoral Research in Instructional Design and Technology: A Directory of Dissertations, 1977-1986 (Caffarella & Sachs, 1988) and Doctoral Research in Instructional Design and Technology: A Directory of Dissertations, 1987-1988 (Caffarella, 1991).
Prior to the publication of this and the earlier directories there was no way to look at all of the doctoral research in instructional design and technology nor any way to compare the kinds of research being done at one institution with that being done at another. The best one could do is to look up the research using a particular topic, subject, or context. Although this piecemeal approach provided some useful information it yielded only a segment of the research in the field. These directories now make it possible to take a closer and more complete look at this significant body of work.
This directory provides an opportunity to better define the research in the field of educational technology and will help the profession to identify valuable studies and research trends. By building upon the research of others, future researchers can advance the field more collectively than could be done by one individual working in isolation.
Particular thanks is extended to the many faculty members who provided the lists of their graduates and dissertation titles. Without these lists this project would not have been possible. Ultimately, thanks are extended to the new doctoral graduates in instructional design and technology who wrote the dissertations included in this directory. With them lies the future of the field.
