The REM program is excited to host our 2020 Student Research Showcase! Our MA and PhD program teaches students to become experts in quantitative, qualitative, measurement, evaluation, and mixed methodologies. These presentations highlight the research and evaluation work of our doctoral students and create a unique opportunity for us to share our work with each other.
In this study, four types of qualitative data analysis methods were used to explore EdD student views of educational research. The findings indicated that although EdD students were able to identify the attributes of research, and understand the importance of research within their own educational practices, they lacked the necessary knowledge of research methodology. Recommendations for EdD research course designs were identified based on the research findings.
