EDL 712 - Advanced Research For Teacher Leaders


Credits: Three (3)
Teacher leaders, both at the school and district levels, must be able to analyze complex research questions and data collections to facilitate improvements in teaching and learning for all students. As a continuation of EDL 711, Introduction to Action Research, this doctoral level research course will focus upon a rigorous, in-depth study of research design and implementation. The goal of this course will be to research and compose the Methodology (chapter three) for the final Capstone project. Candidates will understand the Institutional Review Board (IRB) process and have filed the appropriate forms for IRB approval. Students will have all surveys and forms ready to collect data and have started the process of collecting data pertinent to evaluate their Capstone project. Statistical analysis using appropriate software for complex research with considerations of reliability and validity will be studied, as well as the scope of possible conclusions from the research. The major project for this class will be to complete chapter three and prepare to write chapters four and five.
