Stimulating read which helps students to tease out relationships between arts and experiencing, arts as a means of discovery and the potential uses of arts based research as a form of social inquiry
good resource for students and researchers considering alternative methods
I will recommend it to my musicology colleagues. It is not aimed at music education specifically.
I am currently using this book with 3rd year Research Methods students. Its a good alternative to other more traditional types of research methods books
This book has been enlightening and thought-provoking. I will recommend it to students interested in considering what counts as research and its relationship to the arts.
This is an excellent text for anyone considering more artistic ways of presenting their data. A particular example is most memorable: the use of poetry to present a participants experience. This is an important text adding to the field of creativity in research.
Recommended for those interested in arts based and creative research methods. Covers methods neglected in other research methods texts.
Very useful for student doing research in Restorative Justice that used art for forgiveness.
I have a master's student in fine arts who is going conducting an Directed study with me and using this book as a foundation for his work.
A text that makes a definitive argument for art based research and justifies our raison d'etre. It is a contemporary and timely book with very useful examples that give the research context. New media and traditional forms are all covered.
