EDR 57500 Action Research

Action research is for practitioners who wish to reflect and improve upon their own practice. In this course, students will learn the cycle of action research and the steps involved in each, as well as the theoretical framework for different traditions of action research. The instructor will review different types of data collection and analysis appropriate for this type of applied research. After reading examples of different types of action research in a variety of settings, students in this course will plan an action research or scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) study. The instructor of this course will model by conducting an action research study with the class as participants. Note: This course can replace the core Master of Arts in Education requirement of completing EDU 57000, with advisor approval.
