Course Description

Research in Education: Studying Educational Inequality and Possiblity, EDUC W153

The goal of the Research in Education is to introduce students to educational research and the methods and frameworks used to examine key educational topics related to educational inequity and educational possibility. Students also will develop robust understandings of relevant theories and methods by engaging with research focused around the set of core topics. In this way, students will become ‘re-searchers’ of enduring educational issues.
