Research plays a powerful role in shaping effective teaching and learning experiences. By demystifying the research process, Research for Educators assists readers to develop and use research skills in a range of educational contexts. This introductory text steps the reader through the research process from identifying an initial question for research through to communicating the findings. It encourages educators to become discerning consumers of research, as well as active participants, in order to make informed decisions about classroom practices. Using examples from their own work in a range of educational fields, the authors explore the practices required to conduct quality research that is valid, reliable, ethical useful and socially responsible. Throughout, they emphasise the link between reflective practice and being a researcher in the classroom.
