Educational research is the application of the scientific methods to study educational practices. Educational research uses an organized approach to asking and answering questions and reporting the results. Thus, educational research is as systematic as scientific research. The goal is to evaluate, develop, share and improve teaching/educational practice for students, academics, and policy makers.
There are key aspects to be considered when conducting an Educational Research. This workshop will focus on designing an educational research, identifying a research question, reviewing the literature, and choosing appropriate research methods to collect, analyse and interpret the data.
Dates and venue: 4th and 5th October 2022, University of Zagreb, HR-10000 Zagreb, Croatia

Target participants: Educators of all levels (from teaching assistants to full professors) who are willing to improve their teaching through asking questions and collecting data are invited. No previous educational research experience is required.
