Publisher's Synopsis

This comprehensive Handbook illustrates the wide range of approaches to teaching and learning social research methods in the classroom, online, in the field and in informal contexts. Bringing together contributors from varied disciplines and nations, it represents a landmark in the development of pedagogical culture for social research methods.



Spanning qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods research, this Handbook covers all aspects of teaching and learning, from introductory research methods courses to post-doctoral learning. Offering practical guidance, research evidence and reflective insights, it addresses some of the biggest challenges facing teachers and learners. It further advances ongoing debates, such as facilitating experiential learning online, supporting the development of reflexivity, embedding quantitative methods learning in university programmes and challenging orthodoxies with feminist, anti-racist, and decolonising pedagogies.



This Handbook will be an invaluable resource for teachers of research methods across the social sciences, and for research methods training organisations looking to improve their courses. Researchers and students of pedagogy in higher education will also find it an enlightening read.
