Navigating the Education Research Maze : Contextual, Conceptual, Methodological and Transformational Challenges and Opportunities for Researchers Hardback

Edited by Dolene Rossi, Francis Gacenga, Patrick Alan Danaher

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Education Research Methods series

Description

This book depicts rigorous and vigorous accounts of strategies used successfully by researchers to negotiate their way through the research maze.

The metaphor of the maze evokes several different and sometimes contradictory elements of contemporary education research, including complexity, confusion, messiness, multiplicity and risk.

While these are not necessarily or wholly negative attributes, it is important for researchers to be able to articulate and implement effective strategies for engaging wholeheartedly with these situations to navigate the education research maze.

The book is structured around three main themes; politics, ethics, philosophies and theories of education research mazes; mazes in and with specific research methods; and mazes in and with specific research tasks and technologies.

Each account develops broader lessons for enhancing the impact, quality, relevance and significance of research in other disciplines as well as education.
