Abstract

This research described how a university professor applied a Thesis Instruction Network Studio (abbreviated as TINS) to supervise four graduate students in conducting educational research and writing master theses in science education. TINS contained ten modules of software tools to assist the whole process and provided a scaffolding structure for graduate students to learn in a more meta-cognitive way. An action research method was taken to conduct this research, and two graduate students made a good progress towards preparing their research proposal. TINS had a good potential for university professors to save tremendous amount of time and effort in advising graduate students.
