The Best Laid Plans …

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Frances Bell has responded to my recent presentation on digital research methods. She writes, "A criticism of research that Stephen made was that it tends to find what it is looking for. This is a very valid potential criticism but I would claim that a combination of planning and flexibility can guard against this." Also don't miss a good comment from Roy Williams, who points to "The interesting (epistemological and scientific) point he always seems to duck... that while it is reasonable to accuse the social sciences of 'empty consensus' ... this doesn’t apply in the same way to the physical senses."
