  • Showcases a diverse range of approaches, including experiments, surveys, systematic reviews and mixed methods, to help you choose the best option for your project
  • Focuses on applied research, showing you how to go beyond the classroom and manage and analyse data in the real world
  • Helps you understand best practice for conducting research 'in the field'.

Features include a wide range of student activities that encourage you to think more deeply about what you've learned, student case studies highlighting examples of research from real students, and reflection points, to help you check your understanding.
