Module overview

Educational research is a wide-ranging field that draws upon many different disciplines and methodologies. This introductory module aims to help you navigate this complex field by providing an overview of the common paradigms and methodologies that you are likely to encounter in educational research. The module enables you to find, read, and critically appraise educational research conducted by others. The module also provides you with opportunities to practice relevant skills (e.g. searching for research literature, critical reading and writing, creating an academic poster) while discussing ideas with your peers. The module has a mix of plenary lecture sessions and smaller seminar groups led by a team of tutors.
