Special Issue on Education: Expanding the Scope and Impact of Education ResearchThis issue addresses the question, How do we grow education research in occupational therapy? A new research agenda matrix is presented and each article exemplifies an intersection in the matrix. Dr. Sylvia Rodger and I also discuss this question in a special She Said/She Said feature article in this issue. Dr. Lori Reynold’s story and cover art mirror the design, persistence, and creativity involved in assembling knowledge about and for teaching and learning.
