Practitioner-Based Enquiry: Principles for Postgraduate Research

By Louis Murray; Brenda Lawrence | Go to book overview

Series Editor’s Preface

The purpose of the Social Research and Educational Studies Series is to provide authoritative guides on key issues in educational research. The series includes overviews of fields, guidance on good practice and discussions of the practical implications of social and educational research. In particular, the series deals with a variety of approaches to conducting Social and Educational Research. Contributors to this series review recent work, raise critical concerns that are particular to the field of education, and reflect on the implications of research for educational policy and practice.

Each volume in the series draws on material that will be relevant for an international audience. The contributors to this series all have wide experience of teaching, conducting and using educational research. The volumes are written so that they will appeal to a wide audience of students, teachers and researchers. All together, the volumes in the Social Research and Educational Studies series provide a comprehensive guide for anyone concerned with contemporary educational research.

The series will include individually authored books and edited volumes on a range of themes in education including: qualitative research, survey research, the interpretation of data, self evaluation, research and social policy, analysing data, action research, the politics and ethics of research.

In recent years, there has been considerable discussion and debate about the role of practitioners in conducting educational research. Among the issues raised have been the role of teacher-researchers, and use of action research in schools and classrooms. In this volume, Louis Murray and Brenda Lawrence have brought together a range of methodological issues which will be of use to all those who engage in practitioner-based enquiry. It is a book designed to be used by practitioners interested in conducting education research.
