EAGSR 7118 Nature of Inquiry: Below the Surface of Research

This course's aim is to inquire about the very nature of inquiry--on issues that reside below the surface of the inquiry: assumptions about human nature and conduct, about the place of perception, prior knowledge, belief, ethics, and expectation in making sense of the human world. These assumptions all point to ways of knowing that both inform and result from inquiry, but are too rarely examined in courses focused on methods of educational inquiry, which dominate traditional doctoral program offerings.




For Ph.D. or CAGS students only.
