EFOP 3001 - RESEARCH METHODS IN EDUCATION POLICY AND PRACTICE
The disciplinary and methodological bases for knowledge and associated inquiry in educational administration and policy study are addressed. Examples of research from various paradigms, disciplines, and professional fields are used to show the relationship among theory, method, and knowledge. The relative importance of substantive and methodological concerns in doing research are emphasized. Positivistic, interpretive, and critical theory inquiry can be addressed by students in their required pilot study.
