Abstract

This paper recounts and unpacks the two and one half year history of the continuing efforts of a student-initiated, student-led research group at a major university in the Middle US. Begun with a post to a listserv, the Language Learning & Technology, Research and Design Group’s membership expanded from 3 to 10 and has provided its participants with a range of experiences centered on a particular research project. Members include incoming master’s students to with no research experience, prospective Educational Technology students, PhD candidates, and computer science interns. We describe our experience in a way that might provide insight to fellow Educational Technology students interested in starting, growing, and maintaining a student-led, affinity-based research and design group. We explain why we felt starting a group was necessary, how we kept the group going, and what we are getting out of the experience.
