EDUC 604 - Scholarly Practitioner: Action Research I

Prerequisite, EDUC 582 . The purpose of this course is to support teachers as they conduct research in schools and classrooms. The course is designed to enable participants to carry out an action inquiry, to understand the fundamental principles of action research and to locate the significance of the approach in everyday practice and educational policy. A major part of the course work involves developing an action research project, either on one’s own practice or in conjunction with practitioners in the field, whether in schools or in other parts of the community. The course will engage the participants in systematic inquiry into their own practice; framing appropriate questions, gathering and interpreting data, and analyzing data. Students will learn about action research by doing it and by reading examples of action research. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
