This course is an introduction to the process and practice of research in education. It provides an overview of a variety of educational research methods and introduces both “quantitative” and “qualitative” approaches. In this course, students are assisted to recognize research paradigms as examples of disciplined inquiry, situate various models of inquiry, such as experimental, correlational, and single-subject designs, ethnography, and case studies. Within these models of inquiry, students will be guided to understand, interpret, and critique studies conducted using a variety of methodological approaches, and plan a study with a research design appropriate to a selected research question. The students in this course:
examine characteristics of different educational research paradigms
study applications of these research paradigms to different educational problems
develop skills necessary to conduct a literature review and construct an integrated and critical summary of the literature in a particular area
develop strategies for understanding, interpreting, and evaluating research articles conducted within a range of research traditions
identify a research question of interest they would like to investigate
Principles of instructional design and their application to the development, analysis, and evaluation of instructional plans for selected settings, instructional formats, and age groupings of learners
This course focuses on building teachers’ competencies in creating school and classroom environments that are safe, supportive, caring and respectful. Recognizing the long-standing, historical debates regarding discipline and classroom management, this course provides teacher candidates with an understanding of how traditional discipline and classroom management practices that have emphasized reactive and punitive approaches have given way to a more recent focus on positive approaches, including self-discipline, internalization and restorative practices that focus on building and preserving relationships in an effort to promote positive classroom contexts for learning.
This course is designed to provide a broad overview of theories about how children develop, learn and grow up in a diverse society and how an understanding of development and diversity can inform educational practice.
