Getting Started

Educators have been studying ways to improve teaching and learning for a long time. If you have a topic that is unfamiliar to you, reviewing summaries of existing research may give you some context and help you look for a new or interesting angle on your topic.

    Textbooks in your education courses may introduce you to major themes or researchers in the field.  Other resources that may be helpful are handbooks, encyclopedias, essays and research reviews:
