  1. Reading for the module 13 items
    There are a number of good research methods textbooks that would be appropriate for this module. Some are listed below. We would urge you to buy one of these at least to ensure you have access to one for the whole period of study as you will need a reference book again for your research. Some of the material in the module will relate to specific book chapters, and it is therefore advisable to read the relevant chapter (or a similar chapter from an alternative text) when you are directed to.
    1. Doing practitioner research - Mark Fox, Gill Green, Peter J. Martin, EBSCOhost ebook collection 2007 (electronic resource)


    2. There are also a number of very good text books relating to data analysis. As you will be
      practising using both qualitative and quantitative techniques we have recommended one
      of each type of text book below.


      Both have been chosen for those new to data analysis so
      that you won't feel completely out of your depth when you start reading. However, they
      both cover the subjects in detail and can also be used by those of you that are more
      experienced in data analysis.

    3. Finally, we would like to recommend a text which is specifically aimed at writing a
      literature review.

  2. Other useful resources 1 item
    1. There is a vast literature about research methods that by its nature has a tendency to be somewhat specialist, but you will need to become familiar with some of it.

      Many useful resources are freely available online; in addition to this, as a registered
      student you can access a wide range of databases and journals via the University library.
      Information about how you can do this when you are off-campus is available from the
      library webpages. We recommend that you browse through recent copies of journals
      relevant to your field of study on a regular basis.

      Further readings, most of which are available online, are recommended in the individual
      lessons within each Topic.
