Product Description

Over the past few decades there has been a major shift in research methodology – away from technicist to more contextual and pragmatic approaches. This is reflected in a greater emphasis on interdisciplinary and applied research skills, the concurrent use of qualitive and quantitative methods, and more sophisticated understanding of the epistemological grounding research. Research in Practice incorporates these new trends while also providing comprehensive coverage of the full range of established research approaches and techniques.

Key Features

  • A lively text which incorporates new trends while also providing comprehensive coverage of the full range of established research approaches and techniques
  • Structured to facilitate systematic study of each phase of the research process in sequence
  • Aims to ground research methodology in terms of practical outcomes, and to equip students with applied technical know-how and conceptual tools to evaluate and contextualise their work in terms of larger social and philosophical issues
  • A strong emphasis on practical examples drawn from the southern African experience
  • Richly supplemented by photographs, case studies, tips and checklists.
