The Nature of Educational Research
Gillett, Simon G.
Online Submission
The paper is in two parts. The first part of the paper is a critique of current methodology in educational research: scientific, critical and interpretive. The ontological and epistemological assumptions of those methodologies are described from the standpoint of John Searle's analytic philosophy. In the second part two research papers with different research methodologies were identified (Kumaravadivelu, 2001; Lee, Yoon, & Lee, 2009) and their research methods were critiqued. Special attention was given to the results and discussion section of those educational research papers. Ethics and author's agenda were identified as important to data generated by research in education. A bibliography is included. Mind Map of Paper is appended. (Contains 2 footnotes and 2 tables.)
