EDMC 530 - The Teacher as Researcher

(3 credits)
This course is designed to provide graduate students in education with an introduction to the research design and its processes. An overview of research design methodologies will result in the creation of a research proposal. Emphasis will be placed upon acquiring pragmatic skills that can be used throughout one’s career. Students will be expected to read and interpret statistical parts of published research but not to be expected to run statistical programs. The course will stress the development of skills required for the critical evaluation of current research studies, with discussions taking place in both the classroom as well as in online forums. Students are expected to become informed and critical consumers of research literature and become familiar with the methods and technology surrounding scientific inquiry.
