Education research is the scientific field of study that examines
education and learning processes and the human attributes, interactions,
organizations, and institutions that shape educational outcomes.
Scholarship in the field seeks to describe, understand, and explain how
learning takes place throughout a person’s life and how formal and
informal contexts of education affect all forms of learning. Education
research embraces the full spectrum of rigorous methods appropriate to
the questions being asked and also drives the development of new tools

“The systematic study of teaching and learning, using established or validated criteria of scholarship, to understand how teaching (beliefs, behaviors, attitudes, and values) can maximize learning, and/or develop a more accurate understanding of learning, resulting in products that are publicly shared for critique and use by an appropriate community”
