Multidisciplinary Approaches to Educational Research: Case Studies from Europe and the Developing World (Paperback)Sadaf Rizvi (editor)
- We can order this
This book provides an original perspective on a range of controversial issues in educational and social research through case studies of multi-disciplinary and mixed-method research involving children, teachers, schools and communities in Europe and the developing world. These case studies from researchers "across continents" and "across disciplines" explore a range of interesting issues, including the relevance of research approaches to very different national settings, and to the kinds of questions being asked; the barriers of language and culture between researcher and researched; articulating the thinking and feelings of very young children; the challenges of dealing with "partiality" of data; issues of identity, subjectivity and reflexivity; and transferring research approaches from one national setting to the problems posed in another.

"Multidisciplinary Approaches to Educational Research offers an extraordinarily rich set of insights into ways of conducting educational research. Taking as its focus highly demanding research settings, both in the developing world and in Europe, the volume lucidly displays a creative range of research approaches. In so doing, it shows considerable sensitivity on the part of the authors in conducting their studies, both towards their subjects in schools in all manner of situations and towards the integrity of the research process itself. This highly accessible and fascinating volume will surely be of value to educational researchers, not only those who are relatively new to the role but also more experienced reflective researchers, who are facing the challenges of conducting fine-grained research in complex settings."
- Ronald Barnett, Emeritus Professor of Higher Education, Institute of Education, London
