Transferring the model of reflective practice to research, this book is for those who have found that their initial research training, if they received one, has proved not entirely adequate, or who have found research more complex or intractable than expected. Drawing on examples from her own research and others, Linda Evans shows how, as reflective practitioners, researchers can develop more advanced methods and understandings. It has an international treatment and does not assume familiarity with any one educational system, citing examples of research from different territories.
