EDRS604 - Overview of Educational Research
This is a research unit in the Master of Education, Master of Early Childhood Education, Master of Religious Education, Master of Educational Leadership, Master of Contemporary Literacies and Master of Leadership.
A defining characteristic of professionals is not just their specialised knowledge but their ability to reflect on that knowledge and to draw upon evidence to revise that knowledge in practice. Thus it is important for educators, as professionals, to be able to consume and conduct research. This unit encourages you to be a critical consumer of research and introduces you to a range of conceptual approaches and techniques in educational research. The unit grounds you as a teacher-researcher so that you can understand and participate in research in informed and ethical ways.
