Conducting research within education has developed over the last century has seen research designs develop into complex and sophisticated forms. These research designs stem from our own understanding and our own positioning within an ontological framework. In order to think about knowledge and what it means to education requires the researcher to understand exactly what knowledge is, and Gettier provides us not so much with an answer to this difficult philosophical question but identifies for us what knowledge is not. This epistemological question is directly related to education researchers for understanding what knowledge we seek sets out research designs.
