Competency Area: Educational & Social Policy
Required of and restricted to students in the Educating for Sustainability 2010 cluster through April 25; open to other students on April 26.

Strategies for framing a question, collecting data and determining samples will be part of the discussion. Methods of quantitative and qualitative research will be discussed and the relationship of purpose to method examined. Emphasis will be on the living, changing nature of qualitative research during the process of developing the Master’s Project Proposal.
