Resumen


The poster aims to provoke discussion around the teaching and learning about educational research methods provision and practice. The Algerian universities introduced research methods module as a core module at master’s level in education. However, Idri (2015) Riche (2011) conclude that the module does not adhere to the required standards set by the Algerian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. So, the aim of the current project is to explore master’s students’ perceptions and understanding of research methods in education and how they negotiate their learning and preparation of their dissertation. In addition, the research explores teachers’ decision making of what and how the content is taught to students during classes. The project is in its early stages (i.e. data still to be collected) but the researcher will use the poster presentation to share some of the project’s research questions, the theoretical underpinnings drawn on postcolonial theory, the suggested methodology based on Indigenous research framework, decolonized research methods (interviews and participant-observation), the research context, the research participants and initial data which the presenter hopes to collect prior to taking part in the conference (if the proposal is accepted). The presenter hopes the poster presentation to be deliberately discursive. The ultimate intention is to share research plans and experiences as well as (un)learn, reflect and generate further discussions in relation to teaching and learning about educational research methods at M-level at universities where the audience comes from.
