Abstract:
The purpose of this paper is to discuss three approaches to educational research. First, I will start with a discussion of the research paradigm, providing its definition and its role in conducting research. Then I will discuss positivism, interpretivism and the critical theory approach to research in terms of their underpinning assumptions, quality standards and limitations. I will follow that with my own position regarding research.
