Essentials of Research Methods in Education

About the eBook

This book provides a comprehensive overview of research methods, supported by examples from a range of educational fields, along with pragmatic advice and guidance on how to undertake educational research. 

Using the concept of research as a ‘quest’, this book takes you on a journey from planning stages, through data collection to analysis, to writing up your findings, at each stage exploring the principles and practice that can support your own educational research projects. 

Academic understanding is combined with practical commentary to show how conceptual ideas are used in practice. Case studies throughout the book highlight the power of educational research to shine a light on important social issues.

This is essential reading for students on all education courses that include a research methods module or project.

Scott Buckler PhD is an independent academic, Chartered Teacher and Chartered Psychologist.
