    Introduction to Educational Research Method

    The course will enhance participants’ understanding of the research process.  Participants will critically explore research approaches, language, and ethics. The course will take a step-by-step approach to develop students’ knowledge, skills and understanding on design and implementation of quantitative and qualitative research designs including Cross-sectional surveys, cohort studies, Randomized Controlled Trials, operational study designs which include quasi experiments and Cluster Randomized Controlled Trials.  The course will equip students with the skills necessary to conduct secondary research designs including scoping and systematic reviews.  The course will also help students to develop the skills to recognize and reflect on the strengths and limitations of different research methodologies and address ethical and practical issues in research.  Furthermore, the student will be equipped with the ability to methodologically review and derive meaning from published research work for application in professional practice and growth. 

    Learning Outcomes 

    LO1: To identify and describe different quantitative study designs, describe the key elements and weaknesses and strengths associated with each approach, and application of quantitative research in Educational Professional Practice.

    LO2: To understand Qualitative, Quantitative and Mixed Method Research approaches and their application including data collection, analysis, and reporting methods.  

    LO3: To understand secondary research design and application methods including Scoping and Systematic reviews approaches, and how different research designs can be combined in a mixed method study approach.

    LO4: To understand the concept of research quality assurance and its application in research and ethical principles and application of validity and reliability principles in research.

    The course will lead and guide students to the in-depth understanding of the essence and purpose of critical thinking, reflective and reflexive practices, ethical issues and the current theories affecting the educational system.  The students will critically analyze the Contemporary Issues in the 21st century, that will help them understand the present situation and condition of Education.  This course will also consider the factors that greatly influence the entire educational system; historical, languages, organizational, political, demographic, and contemporary ideologies.  They will introduce to the theory and practices of Transformative Learning and critically reflect its connection to their life as educators.  The students will critically scrutinize the path of the future of education and understand the theories that greatly influence the different organizations and institutions of education.

    Learning Outcomes

    • LO1: To illustrate critical thinking as the foundation of reflective and reflexive practices in education.
    • LO2: To critically analyze and evaluate the different theories of education relating it to their personal and professional life as educators.
    • LO3: To analyze and critically reflect on the implications of Transformative Learning to the Contemporary Issues in the 21st Century and the Future of Education.

    The course will equip students with essential skills, strategies, and tools they need to unleash their fullest potential in leading instructional change and innovation within the organization effectively. Students will also involved in a comparative analysis of effective instructional approaches and models in implementing innovation and leading organizational development.
