Revisiting Philosophical and Theoretical Debates in Contemporary Educational Research and Major Epistemological and Ontological Underpinnings
Cumming, Brett
Online Submission
It is important for educational researchers to possess an understanding that research (albeit a contentious area in terms of what indeed this constitutes) undertaken is done with certain pre-existing values and beliefs as to what we as individuals and teachers hold true. The methods and methodologies defined by Gough (2000, p.3) as "the reasoning that informs particular ways of doing research, or the principles that inform the organisations of research activity" as well as paradigms that we as researchers use and work within are deemed to be highly correlated, as well as congruent to us as in other roles as educators and learners.
