Increasing numbers of practitioners - teachers, social workers, nurses, etc - are doing practical research in their workplace and need to learn how to do research effectively. This book provides an introduction for anybody who wants to improve their professional practice through research. Whether you want to bring about a change in your organization, get a better understanding of your profession, or just become more aware of the way that you work and its effects, this book will give you the means to do it. Divya Jindal-Snape explains the benefits of practitioner research and helps readers to become researchers themselves. She includes stories and tips from real practitioner researchers from a variety of backgrounds to help bring the methods she describes to life.
