Disseminating Qualitative Research in Educational Settings / Edition 1

This book is a useful addition to the growing literature in the field of educational research methodology, and offers a lively and very unusual introduction to an aspect of research which has so far received little attention. It is particularly helpful in drawing on experience across the educational landscape, including adult and lifelong education, as well as schools-based work. For this very reason it will be a very valuable resource for a broad audience.” Studies in the Education of Adults

The processes and practices of the dissemination of research findings are exceptionally neglected fields in the research methods literature. Yet disseminating and using our findings are significant reasons why we undertake research. Organised in three parts, this text provides an accessible, critically informed and up-to-date overview of key aspects of dissemination. In so doing this text:

provides a critical review of contemporary policy and dissemination models in education.
contains a series of case studies produced by internationally respected researchers in a range of educational fields. Drawing on their extensive experiences of dissemination, these case studies illuminate how dissemination acts proceed in qualitative research projects. They also illuminate the dilemmas facing qualitative researchers who strive to disseminate their work.
Enables researchers to develop 'informed practice' in respect of disseminating research in a range of educational settings.
