Drawing on the authors′ substantial experience of teaching research skills at postgraduate level, as well as on their own experiences as active researchers, the book will guide you through:
- discourse analysis
- visual methods
- textual research
- data collection and analysis
This co-authored book is structured around a range of methods applicable to educational research and appropriate for use by practitioners at all stages of their professional development. It takes recognisable, ′real life′ scenarios as its starting point for each discussion of method, so that readers are able to start from the known and familiar.
As well as exploring theoretical aspects of research method, each chapter provides practical tasks and points for discussion and reflection. These approaches, taken together, are designed to build confidence and encourage reader engagement and enjoyment.
