Research Skills for Classroom-Based Research

Course Description

The trends of professional development shifted from focusing only on enhancing teachers’ teaching skills to research skills. The importance of this stems from the fact that a teacher who is also a researcher has the potential to self-reflect and share experiences based on evidence from researching teaching and learning. This course introduces the key aspects that a teacher, who is interested in research, needs to consider to design and conduct his/her own research activity. The course starts with possible quantitative and qualitative research designs for classroom environment, it then introduces the most common ways to analyze each type of data, and provides teachers with tips for writing-up their research projects and getting published.
