For qualitative research studies in education, the theoretical framework plays a role analogous to the role of the instrument. In this book, kindly shared as an open resource, multiple authors explain many theoretical frameworks for chemistry/science education research.

Connecting the Canadian Chemistry Education Research Community to Explore New Ways of Learning in Higher Education
This forum will bring together chemistry education researchers at a new forum on May 28, 2017 to: exchange research knowledge and build research capacity, build reciprocal relationships, connect the chemistry education research (CER) community, and ultimately shape the future of CER in Canada, for the benefit of students. To do so, we will develop action plans along three areas during the forum: (1) Connecting researchers, (2) Identifying Canadian priorities for CER, and (3) Coordinating chemistry learning outcomes. This forum represents the first opportunity for Canadian chemistry education researchers to come together and focus on priorities that will benefit both researchers and Canadian students studying chemistry, a central discipline in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.
