The authors provide information and guidance on developing research skills such as gathering and analysing information and data, reporting findings and research design. They offer critical perspectives to help users reflect on research approaches and to scrutinise key issues in devising research questions.
This book is for undergraduate and postgraduate students, teachers and practitioners in practitioner research development and leadership programmes.
The team of authors are all within the School of Education at the University
of Glasgow and have significant experience of working with practitioner
researchers in education.
A very readable guide to carrying out research in the area of education. This book is suitable for students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Each section of research is carefully and logically dealt with, giving the reader a very clear indication of how to go about putting together a research project and writing the final dissertation.
Useful examples are provided throughout the book and there is also guidance on further useful reading.
This is a great introductory text for teachers/educators who want to start doing research that focuses on learning outcomes. We are using it with an international course as it is well presented with easy to understand sections, chapter summaries, references and helpful models.
This book provides a very good introduction to practitioner research for teachers and other educators.
Useful, practical, clear guide.
Presented in a logical format, easy to understand and allows the student to grasp difficulty research concepts with ease. Some practical overviews, a hands on book!
Very useful text and essential for those undertaking research within educational settings.
We have two year 2 compulsory Research Methods modules (one in semester 1 and the other in semester 2) on our BSc Education single and combined programmes which will start this October. The programmes will have many students who wish to go into teaching as a career and hence this text will be very useful in helping our students to think through development of their project ideas from a practitioner perspective and this will compliment other research methods texts which may have less of a practitioner specific focus. This will continue to be a very useful text when students are actually undertaking their dissertation in their final year.
Useful for the research task and for those going on to university.
There are several books we recommend for research methods and guidance, and this will now be one of them. It is clear and informative, not too offputting for students. It meets the needs of our students who are new to practitioner research.
perfect: a real gem!
