Description:
This online course is an intensive 12-week, 4 module research course for those who will be developing dissertation level inquiry from a social constructionist perspective.
 
Students will learn about:

  1. Various research traditions and methods (e.g., narrative, discursive, interviews, ethnography)
  2. The processes of credible or trustworthy inquiry
  3. Ways to present one’s project in which social construction is demonstrated as the grounding for all decision-making.

In Module 1, we will look into locating/situating your inquiry within traditions, previous research efforts, decisions, and choices.
 
In Module 2, we will consider the major issues and decisions one faces in researching/inquiring (e.g., politics, ethics, and theoretical orientation) as well as families of processes/methodologies.
 
In Module 3, we will present and discuss what is usually expected as part of an inquiry.
 
In Module 4, we will consider creativity in research while still meeting research expectations.

This sequence will integrate well with the next research course which extends and expands the relational focus of inquiry.

There will be four online sessions of 2 hours each in which we hold discussions based upon the materials and assignments required for each module. There will be 3 weeks in between each module so that there is ample time for students to be fully prepared for our face-to-face discussions as well as to engage in dialogue using a discussion board throughout the weeks when there is no formal class time.

REQUIRED: Orientation and beginning assignments on Friday, Jan. 12th at 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM New York Time/US Eastern.

There will be four online sessions (live video conference calls) for this course held on Fridays at 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM New York time/ US Eastern time.
