Reflection

Before taking ETEC 543, I didn’t have any idea about research. The class was the very first time to learn about research for me, so the class was interesting. The most interesting is the difference between action research and traditional research. I didn’t have any idea about them, but I can explain them. Traditional research focuses on advancing knowledge in the field while Action research aims the improvement of educational practice. Secondly, the most difficult part was building a research question. In the beginning, I didn’t much care about the importance of the research question and how to build it; but, now I know a good research question must be non-biased, answerable, focused, pertinent, relevant and intriguing. Lastly, I enjoyed interviewing other students to do my team research.
