This course introduces students to paradigmatic assumptions that underlie various traditions, with an eye toward helping students conceptualize research problems, develop researchable questions, and select appropriate research methods to respond to those questions. In this course, students examine how ontological, epistemological, and methodological assumptions shape research in education. The traditions of inquiry discussed in this class will help students understand the underlying assumptions about knowledge and knowledge production that lead to similarities and differences within and across qualitative and quantitative approaches to research.

Students explore leadership development and collaborative educational improvement through the underlying theory and practical application of psychological type, emotional intelligence, and theories of change. This course serves two purposes: (1) cohort formation, and (2) the use of theory, scholarship, and practice (tacit) knowledge to analyze educational dilemmas and make educational change. Students become members of a leadership/research team and investigate and analyze a case study involving an educational dilemma. After identifying root causes, students examine and critique underlying assumptions regarding problem definition and solution(s) using the lens of social justice, and apply adult learning and change theory to identify the opportunities for leadership and potential barriers to implementing change.
