1 semester credit

Educators in this course explore the action research process as a meaningful and vital aspect of the teaching profession. When education professionals hear the word research, it often conjures images of endless statistical analysis and long hours poring through journals and books on a given topic. Not surprisingly, these images may deter education professionals from engaging in research. Here, teachers are presented with concepts needed to conduct research in their own classrooms or schools and to enact positive social change. They begin the action research process by identifying a current issue or problem in their classroom or school setting, writing a literature review, and refining research questions.
