About the Author:

Kathleen Armour is Professor of Education and Sport, and Head of the Department of Sport Pedagogy at the University of Birmingham, UK. Her research interests are in teacher/coach career-long professional development, physical activity and health pedagogies and the role of sport in the lives of disaffected/disengaged youth.

Doune Macdonald is Professor and Head of School of the School of Human Movement Studies, University of Queensland, Australia. Her research interests have addressed the challenges of curriculum reform and its impact, and more recently broader questions of physical activity, health and young people.

Review:

"For the emerging researcher, this is an invaluable source of possible tools for asking the important questions in a field of study. For the advanced student of physical education and youth sport, this is a refreshing approach to the challenging discipline of academic research.  Recommended.", Choice magazine

 

"Strengths of the text are that is it well written throughout, and the examples used will be relevant and interesting to the reader. The writing style throughout is accessible to the novice researcher, and this is a text that will cover the needs of those beginning their research journey in the field of youth sport and physical education, as well as those slightly more advanced researchers, for example those beginning doctoral research will find this book a good starting point [...] this will be a welcome addition to the research methods literature in sport, and one that I could fully recommend to anyone starting their research journey in the area." Ian Jones - Bournemouth University
