A critical skill in engineering education research is the ability to formulate “good” research questions. As David Hilbert states, “he who seeks for methods without having a definite problem in mind seeks for the most part in vain”. Issues researchers need to consider in formulating research questions include: what is the nature of the phenomenon, will this study have implications for theory or practice, and who is the audience for this research. A good research question will be timely, focused, generative, and align with disciplinary research design principles.
