Beginning educational researchers need to have a good grasp of the central and current ideas, concepts, debates, theories, philosophies and approaches employed in educational research. This provides a foundation for their understanding and application of different research approaches and methods. The purpose of the module is to introduce you to the range of philosophical and theoretical ideas and debates underpinning educational and social science research, including exploring in some depth the key technical, philosophical and theoretical concepts and terms used in current research reports and debates, and the ethical and political dimensions of research.
