Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) (San Francisco, CA, Apr 2006)
Students' perspectives, levels of epistemological understanding, and critical thinking dispositions related to the use of case studies in an educational psychology course. This is the second part of a research project investigating students' perspectives and critical thinking dispositions related to case study pedagogy in an educational psychology course. The first part of the research focused on students' perspectives on the meaningfulness of cases for transfer into future teaching situations and differences between students' perspectives and instructors teaching with cases. This second part of the study looks at qualitative and quantitative data (observational field notes, interviews, surveys, video-tapes, California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory) of students' behaviors exhibited during case discussions, their levels of epistemological understanding, and their critical thinking dispositions. The following are appended: (1) Interview Questions for Students; and (2) Epistemological Understanding Rubric. (Contains 2 tables and 10 figures.)
