Course Description

Are you a reflective practitioner of teaching? This workshop series aims to familiarize participants with an understanding of education research. The series will discuss issues around the nature of teaching and learning, how to use these understandings as the foundation of meaningful research questions and, the emphasis of appropriate methodologies for investigations. Some of the methods to achieve this will be to look at the use of different theoretical frameworks to contextualize your investigation and the results; discuss issues of research participant selection and the ethics surrounding human subject’s research; and how to collect and analyze data to craft answers to your original questions.

During the series, participants will

  • Become ready to ask meaningful questions to investigate aspects of teaching and learning
  • Develop a more robust understanding of theoretical framing within an investigation
  • Become conversant in within the context of the ethics of doing human subjects research
  • Prepare to embark on their own investigation into a meaning aspect of teaching and/or learning

Glenn is the Tamaratt Teaching Professor in Geoscience and has been teaching geology and researching student learning at the University of Calgary since 2013. He has held two Taylor Institute SoTL grants and has published in Science Education and Geoscience Education journals.
