This book is a guide to research methods for practitioner research. Written in friendly and accessible language, it includes numerous practical examples based on the authors' own experiences in the field, to support readers.
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.
This book, with its focus on practitioner research in education, will certainly be of value to practitioner researchers who find the more generic books on social science research methods not tackling the specific challenges they face in sufficient detail. -- Paul Davies * Educational Review *
