Scholars from all over the world conduct research on Direct Instruction. Some serve on the faculties of colleges and universities, some work in institutes devoted solely to research, some are independent researchers, and some are teacher scholars, doing action research in their classrooms. NIFDI invites all who are doing research on Direct Instruction to join the Direct Instruction Research Group. Information is periodically sent to this group on recent research, possible research sites, funding, and other areas of potential interest. With members’ permission, help with networking and collaboration is also provided.
