ED 520 Research – Morning

Hybrid 6-Week Course  | Onsite July 15-19, 2019 8-11am  |  Instructor: Dr. Nelson

While knowledge and skills will be addressed to help students effectively design and conduct their research, the bulk of the course will be to help students identify  and refine their research problem, select an appropriate research design, and guidance in the selection of appropriate literature for their literature review.
