EDGR 698: Action Research
Action research is the capstone project for the Master of Education program. During this five-week course, candidates will complete final edits of the Literature Review, collect a Letter of Consent from the site administrator, implement Action Research, collect and analyze data from the Action Research implementation, and complete the Action Research Documentation Form.
This design provides students with the requisite skills and means to pursue the transformative practice called “Action Research” in their classroom, school, district or other work environment. The reporting method for the capstone project closely aligns with current classroom realities, with district and school requirements, and the needs of teachers and students.
As a result, students will leave the Concordia University Online M.Ed. program with a research-based tool that facilitates a practical, hands-on solution-oriented investigation to quickly and conveniently implement the Action Research Cycle in response to classroom dilemmas, academic changes or puzzling questions they encounter. Ultimately, the Action Research tool will be effectively integrated into each candidate’s skill set as a scholar practitioner.
