This introductory collection brings together contributions from a range of international researchers, each working within their own traditions, to explore current perspectives on the use of analytical approaches in education. Providing a close examination of cutting-edge data analysis techniques, each contribution describes a set of tools to assist prospective researchers as they decide which analytical approach or approaches best suit their own research endeavours. Exploring theoretical approaches from both a macro and a micro perspective, each chapter: Outlines the theoretical assumptions of the approach Highlights the constraints and tensions within the approach Contextualises the tradition in which the approach is located Provides data and case studies to illustrate how the approach is used in classroom research and the realities of practice In the final chapter a cross-comparison between the approaches covered is presented, allowing researchers to better understand which approach is most suitable for their project.
Essential reading for all those interested in the theory behind the analytical approach, this book will appeal to all postgraduates, researchers, and academics engaged in research in educational settings.
