9780826475633: Educational Research in Practice

Offering valuable insights into the education and social research community, eight researchers representing contrasting approaches―from the United Kingdom, New Zealand and North America―explain what they do, why they do it, its methodological basis, and perceived outcomes. Main themes are then analyzed and discussed by the editors, both experienced teachers of research methodology and methods.

About the Author:

Joanna Swann is a Popperian philosopher of learning and method, known internationally for her innovative theoretical and practical explorations of the implications of evolutionary epistemology for teaching and education research. Formerly a Principal Lecturer at the University of Brighton, UK, she is now a freelance author. John Pratt is Emeritus Professor of the Centre for Institutional Studies at the University of East London, UK, and Visiting Professor at the University of Brighton, UK.

Review:

'...many research students might find this lively plurality of personal viewpoints a more engaging entry into discussions of methodology than dry synopses of allegedly mutually-exclusive paradigms that capture little of the passion and energy that inspire adherents.' Volume 53, Number 4 (James Aczel British Journal Of Educational Studies)

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Educational Research in Practice offers valuable insights into problems faced by educational researchers.

Dialogues between the book s editors and four of its contributors offer fascinating first-hand debate between Popperians and exponents of post-modernism, critical theory, indigenous research and case-study. The editors provide a set of principles for good research practice and a substantial glossary of research terms and their usage. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780826475633
