Additional Book Details

Doing Qualitative Research in Education Settings, Second Edition is a methods book that speaks directly to qualitative researchers in the field of education, providing a step-by-step guide to the development of a research project. Written in accessible language, the book emphasizes learning how to do qualitative work. Specific examples from real studies, using real data and demonstrating real analyses, are provided throughout. The book is designed to guide doctoral candidates through the dissertation process, from unpacking assumptions and identifying research questions, through project design, data collection and analysis, to writing the final draft. Recommendations for publishing qualitative work are included.

New to the second edition are a comprehensive updating of citations and references, new sections addressing the impact of computer-mediated communication (especially as related to data collection and analysis), an overview of the recent history of qualitative research, and an overall refresh that acknowledges the many changes that have occurred in society and academe since the original publication.
