Prerequisite: Permission of the program director. (First and second semesters for a full year/3 credits)
Implementation of an action research special project in learning and teaching. Choice is made individually with the course instructor. The action research work is completed in two semesters, beginning in the fall and ending in the spring with a presentation of the findings. It is expected that students will complete a thorough literature review of their topics, clarify a hypothesis about a solution to a learning and teaching classroom problem, collect baseline data related to the problem, design an intervention program, monitor the intervention program being implemented, test the effect of their proposed solution and reflect and generalize about future actions.
