Short Courses in Educational Research

The field of educational research sets as objectives to explore notions, theories and trends within the filed, to define and transfer types, characteristics and shared terminology, to describe and utilise methods and techniques of quantitative and qualitative research in a critical manner towards the concrete educational phenomenon. The educational research student, passionate about conducting research, has to immerse him/herself in research projects and research teams and throughout the studies gains reflexive, critical and analytical competencies and the ability to innovate the existing educational practices.

Making use of other disciplines like psychology, anthropology, sociology and philosophy, educational research sets out to conduct its activity in a rigorous and systematic way. Due to the broad base for the methodology of educational research, the results are not always generalizable and have to be interpreted in the context of the used methodology.
