The research project explored research methodology teaching and learning approaches and students' experiences of writing MA education dissertations within the Algerian tertiary education system. A particular focus of this research involves interrogating issues of power, voice and the reproduction of the social world in the classroom using critical pedagogy and critical theory as frameworks.
