This workshop will demonstrate how theory can be thought of as a “mentor” throughout the research process. It will include discussion of how theory is integrated into research (and why).
Laura will use critical theory as an example of how she has applied theory in her own work.
At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to
- describe how and why theory is integrated into research,
- outline the main characteristics of critical theory, and
- discuss how critical theory can be applied in HPE research.
