Research, Anti-Racism, Systems Thinking
This course falls as the mid-point course in a three semester continuum, where doctoral learners build their skills as scholarly practitioners with an anti-racist lens. Learners enter the course having identified a problem of practice for their scholarly research. And within EDU 710, learners will build their toolkit of practitioner research methods and approaches to support their general knowledge and to consider how to possibly apply toward their problem of practice. Within the course, learners will explore improvement science, participatory action research, ethnography, developmental, qualitative, and quantitative methods. During the course, students will learn about the methodological approaches and apply them in small scale ways toward their problems of practice.
