'This book successfully revives Lawrence Stenhouse's seminal work on the 'teacher-researcher' by showing the interconnectedness of teaching and research and stressing the key role of the practitioner-researcher. Its chapters provide comprehensive guidance for researchers at all levels on conducting small scale research in an ethical and reflexive way'-Professor Jerry Wellington, Sheffield
Comprehensive text, thorough and clearly laid out. Very useful for supporting PGCE/ SD trainees new to research as well as supporting those who have carried out research before.
This is an excellent text which I will recommend to any of my students undertaking qualitative research. The language is open and clear. Liz Atkins really understands the needs of M level education practitioners.
A great companion for anyone conducting qualitative research in Education. Can recommend this book.
This book covers key methodological issues and qualitative research designs in the educational field. Each chapter includes examples that are particularly useful to understand ‘how’ to carry out research. The activities in each chapter are a good complement to reinforce knowledge and understanding of key concepts. This book is an ideal introduction for master and undergraduate students in Education who are doing or planning to do a small-scale qualitative research. I recommend this book to my second year students and use it as an essential reading at the master level.
A rather analytical and easy-to- read book.
Each chapter of the book opens with a useful and clear summary. The additional reflective activities and vignettes offer opportunities for critical thinking and help readers to engage with the material.
This is a genuine title that can help students grasp the skills required for qualitative research. Students not only from Education stream but from other social sciences can benefit from it. I recommend it also for students with Applied Linguistics background at an early stage of research.
Not relevant for Education Leadership and Management field. There are more appropriate books available.
A good book covering a good range of research at an appropriate level for our students.
we have requested copise for central and departmental libraries.
This book is well written and it is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students who use qualitative research.
Brilliant book for these studies
This is a very good book at the student level for two reason:
1. It gives a basic idea in how to conduct a qualitative research when you are not familiar with this type of research specially in the educational enviroment
2. The structure of the book facilitates to the students the steps you need to make in order to answer a qualitative research question
specially interesting chapter 6
to indepth and complicated for level 3 student
A highly readable, accessible and comprehensive text. This is ideal reading for those setting up masters research within Education fields.
I like the accessibility of this text and the fact it is linked to BERA. That helps us to convince students of the importance of ethical guidelines to education research.
A good source book for those either undertaking a critical review or carrying out qualitative research
A different perspective on qualitative research for anyone interested in educational research
Provides an impressive amount of information for students engaging in research in Education at UG or PG level. Highly recommended
A highly practical text with real life examples. Theory and practice are linked in meaningful ways.
