The Role of Theory in Research
Post an explanation of the role of theory in research. Then do the following:
- Identify a theory in your discipline and explain its basic tenets.
- Then, with this theory in mind, discuss how you see the world and the people around you.
- Finally, describe the extent to which the assumptions of your chosen theory align with the philosophical orientation that reflects your worldview, as discussed in the previous week.
As noted in the FEM, respond to one or more learners whose identified theories are different from yours. Compare your theories and speculate on the differences.
