The Handbook of Qualitative Research in Education offers both basic and advanced discussions of data collection, analysis and representation of all the best qualitative methods used in educational research.

It contains four comprehensive yet concise sections on perspectives, settings, data collection and data analysis and representation. Authors from Australia, Europe, New Zealand and North America contribute to a wide-ranging and provocative Handbook that will inspire novice researchers and re-invigorate experienced scholars.

Its 44 well-documented chapters will serve academics and graduate students in educational research across all sectors of education from pre-school to graduate school, and all settings from formal to non-formal.
