This book provides educators with an engaging introduction to educational research that places a greater emphasis on which research was conducted. They’ll gain a strong understanding of why certain concepts are important, why certain methods are used, and why certain conclusions are drawn. Springer offers more coverage of research ethics, statistics, and program evaluation than other resources. Research Boxes highlight a research article that makes the connection to the chapter content. Numerous figures and tables are also presented to enhance the material. This approach will help educators apply the right research techniques to meet their needs.
