In this course, you are to choose a current topic in the field of education to research. This topic should be focused on something that interests you and would benefit educators in the classroom today. This also allows you to reflect on your higher education journey. What courses stick out to you as interesting and helped you grow as an educator? What topics made you want to investigate and discuss them further with friends or colleagues? After selecting a topic that you would like to research, you will develop and submit the Final Project: Proposal Assignment. This assignment allows you to explore your topic in depth by delving into five specific sections. These five sections, which include Statement of Purpose, Rationale, Research Base, Projected Application and Description of the Projected Outcomes, will help you form a basis for your Final Project: Presentation Assignment.
