Research seminar focusing on development of a research proposal to investigate contemporary issues in music education. In this course you will examine questions and problems of music teaching and learning that are of particular interest to you. You will explore ways to investigate those problems by designing a classroom research project, and you will learn how to carry out a research project and write a research report. Coursework is divided into content areas that correspond to major phases of the research process: formulation of a topic and development of specific research questions, review of related literature, and design of research methodology.
