[SUMMER 2021 Course Offering] 

EDEF 678 - Approaches to Educational Inquiry
CRN: (Please contact the instructor)
Summer Session I, Synchronous & Asynchronous
Time for synchronous sessions: 3-5pm, HST (via zoom)
Instructor: Dr. Donald Edwards, Jr., donalde@hawaii.edu

Description of Course Content: 

This course has two broad and connected educational aims. First, it provides an overview of the various research methods that can be employed in educational inquiry, with particular emphasis on the role of qualitative research in education inquiry projects. Working independently and collaboratively, you will become knowledgeable about the different research paradigms (quantitative, qualitative, transformative) through selective readings and experience doing your own research projects/proposals (or developing ideas for such). 

Secondly, the course will provide you with an understanding of the processes and methods necessary to plan and implement a research project. Particular attention will also be given to the purposes and processes involved in conducting a literature review for your MEd /PhD thesis, and how the process of doing a literature review informs the selection and framing of a research study. Think of this course as your opportunity to explore any questions or concerns you may have about: deciding on your educational research inquiry and designing a proposal for your study.

**The final assignment for the class is a proposal for a research study.**

“Every Student Deserves Someone Special” 

We just want to call attention to this awesome project led by one of our own. On March 11, 2021, the University of Hawaii at Manoa and Hawaii Public Schools launched the Every Student Deserves Someone Special campaign website. A collaborative project, spearheaded by the UHM College of Education (COE), Department of Special Education (SPED) University of Hawaii at Mānoa Department of Special Education, the campaign addresses the ongoing challenge of special education teacher recruitment and retention in Hawaiʻi.

The goal of Someonespecialforstudents is to increase the number of students pursuing a teaching degree or certificate through the UH System. In this case, the campaign specifically promotes SPED programs while helping to destigmatize special education and foster support for individuals with disabilities. 

Meet the inaugural SPEDucator Project fellows here: https://sites.google.com/hawaii.edu/the-speducator-project/meet-the-speducators 
Visit the Every Student Deserves Someone Special campaign website to learn more about becoming a SPED teacher: https://someonespecialforstudents.com/
