Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

EDUC 5002G - Research Methods in Education


This course is a general introduction to educational research methods. The epistemological assumptions about the nature of knowledge and the relationship between theory and evidence are extensively examined across a broad range of approaches to research. Students consider the types of questions that can be answered through research as well as the practical and ethical questions that arise in educational research. A central goal of the course is to instil a culture of disciplined inquiry for modern teaching professionals. As graduate students, they become critical readers and consumers of research. There is, in addition, a praxis element to this course, as participants are encouraged to build capacity for engaging in research-driven practice. Technology has a significant role to play in the research process, but caution must be observed with respect to the ethics of collection of information. The importance of computer software packages for both quantitative and qualitative analysis is also introduced. This course is required of all students.
Credit hours: 3
