Doing Practitioner Research focuses on helping practitioners conduct research in their own organizations, and attention is given to the best methods for doing this effectively and sensitively. The authors also attend to the theoretical, political, and organizational context of doing research, as well as addressing the ethical and practical issues of undertaking research.
This book will be essential reading for those professionals/practitioners engaged in research in their own organization or undertaking a post–graduate qualification in Health, Social Care, or Education.
easy to read and excellent for all grades of students
Practical elements of research explained well. Good use of scenarios to aid development.
Very relevant, raised some contentious and critical issues on practitioner research.
The book provides a clear and easy-to-read account of practitioner research.
A very useful introduction to research for my pre registration MSc nursing students in their research module. Excellent practical examples which explore issues in practitioner research. Helps students relate theory to practice areas.
Timely work for practitioners in education, health and social care. Lots of key features pertinent to students who are having to research their own practice using academic conventions. Shows how university level research skills can be applied within a work-based context.
This book provides a valuable overview for practitioners who may work in a research environment but are novice researchers. The layout of the book is clear and provides some really helpful signposts and activities to guide the students' learning.
This is one of the texts that I deem to be 'essential' for any module - in this case for 'Practitioner Research', a level III module which is offered across two semesters. Undergraduate students need no other source / publication to learn the basic foundations of Practitioner Research.
Good introductory text, which examines the main issues surrounding practitioner research. Would be of particular value to the health care professions as well as educational researchers.
A useful introduction into research for the clinician. There are many texts like this one, but this will suit some practitioners in their endeavours.
