The authors explore the implications of these research contexts, and discuss approaches and methodologies that work based researchers might adopt, with a particular focus on ethics - one of the key concerns for those undertaking a research project of this type.
This book is an authoritative and readable guide to the theory and practice of work based research. It is for anyone undertaking a research project based on work practice, including learners on postgraduate, undergraduate and doctoral programmes. Practitioners, managers and participants in work based courses or modules in education, healthcare and business management, will find it particularly useful.
This is a really useful text for students navigating the complexities of being an insider researcher, including the challenges of working ethically, negotiating power relationships, and seeking to build collaborative practices. Highly recommended.
The textbooks provide a really interesting perspective on work-based research.
