This book has the potential to inform and frame the next generation of research scholars in education.
This is a great book! It provides knowledge about the theoretical as well as the practical aspects of educational research. It is engaging and provides rich information from experienced researchers for doctoral students and early careers researchers. It is interesting and easy to read. I would highly recommend it.
This is not so much a 'how to' book, as a 'why to' book, at least in the first half. It explores some key concepts in research design for educational purposes and then, in the second half, suggests some ways in which these concepts can be practically applied across various research methods. Applications include surveys, ethnography, case studies and mixed methods. As an edited volume, it contains numerous voices which, in my view, makes it more diverse and interesting to read.
