Educational Research in Practice offers valuable insights into problems faced by educational researchers. In order to convey what it is like to be a researcher, experienced practitioners from the UK, New Zealand, and North America address a common set of questions about their research: what they do; why they do it; its methodological basis; perceived outcomes. Dialogues between the book's editors and four of its contributors offer fascinating first-hand debate between Popperians and exponents of post-modernism, critical theory, indigenous research and case-study. The editors provide a set of principles for good research practice and a substantial glossary of research terms and their usage.
