About the Author:

Dr. Ann Briggs is Emeritus Professor of Educational Leadership at Newcastle University, UK.  She has published on research methods, middle leadership, 14-19 education and management structures in post-compulsory institutions.  Ann is a past Chair of BELMAS and is currently National Secretary of NZEALS, having retired to New Zealand in 2009.

Marianne Coleman is Reader Emerita in Educational Leadership at University College London, Institute of Education. Before a career in higher education at the University of Leicester and the Institute of Education she was a secondary school teacher and an advisory teacher in an LEA. Now retired, she continues to research and write focusing on her interest in gender and leadership and wider issues of diversity and social justice. She has recently co-authored a book on ageing and is a trustee of the Nurture Group Network, an educational charity which supports children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Review:

′It would be hard to find a more stellar cast of scholars and researchers than the one that appears in this important and timely work. Their expertise and viewpoints stretch around the world and touch the field of educational leadership and management at nearly all levels: policy, theory, and practice. I am confident that Research Methods in Educational Leadership and Management will become a "sole source" reference for professors, practitioners and policy wonks in educational leadership and management for many years to come′
-Fenwick W. English, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

′This is an excellent book which meets a real need. Although there is a good choice of books on educational research methods, this is the only one which provides an authoritative and fully comprehensive coverage of all key issues related to educational leadership and management research. This third edition not only updates the text and places greater emphasis on an international perspective, but has been significantly extended to provide more in-depth coverage of a number of key themes, including mixed methods research, computer-assisted data analysis and learner perspectives. Provision of further learning resources through a related website is an added bonus.

Although the book is an invaluable guide for all involved in educational leadership and management research, I have no doubt that it will have a much wider appeal to students of other closely related social science disciplines, including business and organisational studies.

As a programme leader in International Educational Management, I shall be strongly recommending this revised edition to university libraries and all students on postgraduate degree programmes in educational leadership and management′
-Dr Michael Wilson,

Programme Leader for the MA in International Educational Management,
School of Education,

University of Leeds
