Course description

Students will investigate a range of practitioner-inquiry approaches and develop an understanding of practitioner tools for empirical study of practices to improve student learning. Critical analysis of how practitioner-inquiry questions are constructed and the ability to situate and view educational issues within major theoretical frameworks will be developed. Students will design a well justified proposal for investigating professional practice.
