  • In an era of multidisciplinarity, how do they address the multiplication of research methods?
  • Are methodologies courses providing foundational preparation for proceeding to more advanced study in specific disciplines or in area, inter- and cross- disciplinary programs or cognates consisting of newly formed associations between long-standing and more recently configured fields?
  • What contributions are methodologies courses expected to make to undergraduate and graduate programs? Are methodologies courses emphasizing intellectual content as distinct from or to the exclusion of teaching or practical information about professional practice?
  • How do methodologies courses evaluate student learning?
  • Are methodologies courses being asked to shoulder additional responsibilities in preparing and evaluating students, given the increasing institutional interest in and expectations regarding the evaluation of student learning?
