ED581 Discourse Analysis in Education Research

Introduces students to discourse analysis, which has become a key analytic lens in educational research, as a research methodology and analytic framework for the examination of language in use. Provides students with opportunities to discuss central theoretical issues in discourse analysis and to work with language data to develop students’ analytic skills and to receive critical feedback on their work. Introduces students to discourse analysis from the following theoretical positions: linguistic anthropology, critical discourse analysis, and sociolinguistics. The course is intended for advanced doctoral students who have taken introductory research methods courses and those interested in learning about discourse analysis to advance their own research. It may be used to fulfill the advanced qualitative research methods course requirement for PhD students, and counts as research credit in the program of study. Students should discuss this option with their advisor.
