Utilization of Technology-Enhanced Delphi Techniques

Utilization of Technology-Enhanced Delphi Techniques

Date: 2002
Creator: Andrews, Charles G. & Allen, Jeff M.
Description: This article discusses the Delphi consensus-building technique. Also discussed are the Delphi Technique's history, the process, and some advantages and disadvantages found in the literature. Finally, this article examines a technology-enhanced version of the process. The study provides researchers interested in using the Delphi Technique in conjunction with technology with a process that is easily duplicated. Nine university professors/instructors agreed to address one question: "What information should the student be aware of when working on a team project?" The question is unimportant. However, the results of the Delphi consensus regarding this single question are provided, along with a framework for conducting future Delphi studies, using computer technology. Cost savings and time reduction are important advantages to be considered when conducting a Technology-Enhanced Delphi study using computer technology.

Retrospective Pretest: A Practical Technique for Professional Development Evaluation

Date: 2007
Creator: Allen, Jeff M. & Nimon, Kim F.
Description: The purpose of this study was to field test an instrument incorporating a retrospective pretest to determine whether it could reliably be used as an evaluation tool for a professional development conference.
