Week 7 – Assignment: Critique Yourself as a Researcher
This week, you will review all of your prior assignments submitted in Weeks 1-6 and review the Week 7 resources to facilitate critical reflection of your paradigmatic perspective, method choice, corresponding research design, data measurement/instrument, and educational research problem and purpose to assess your current ability to design and carry out graduate-level research.
You will draft a five-paragraph critical reflection to evaluate how and why your coursework has prepared you for this consideration of an approach to educational research and offer thoughts on future training you will need to be ready for your dissertation research or capstone project. In closing, address the new learning gained in this course and how you will incorporate this new learning into your expanded research skillset as well as how you will reach for additional resources needed to support you as a new investigator.
