012223 Research in Learning

6cp; availability: exchange and study abroad students with faculty approval



The aims of this subject are to explore educational issues through research with a view to improving professional practice, to develop student knowledge and understanding of the research process with a specific focus on research in education (teaching and learning) and to foster a critical reflective capacity to enhance and improve praxis. The subject examines the role that educational research can play in informing classroom practice. Students read and interpret a range of research studies from differing paradigms and perspectives. The questions, assumptions, methodologies, findings and implications of these studies are identified and assessed. Discussions centre on ways that such research can be used in developing approaches that help K–6 students learn. Consideration is also given to the role of the teacher as researcher in a school context.
