Case study research methods are commonly used in the health sciences, political science, psychology, and business, among other fields. The focus in this course is case studies in education. We will discuss what constitutes a case (e.g., one or more focal teachers, learners, programs, countries), epistemological and ethical issues, research design, methods for carrying out and writing up case studies (in reports, theses, dissertations, and research articles), and criteria for evaluating case studies. The instructor has published widely on this topic and related issues (e.g., generalizability) in applied linguistics but this course will be cross-disciplinary, representing the breadth of case study research, topics, and issues across the Faculty.
