  • mixed method research
  • literature review
  • case studies
  • survey, interviews and focus groups

  • writing the dissertation.

Each chapter includes a full range of useful pedagogical features, including chapter summaries, practical activities, case studies, dialogues with active researchers and guidance on further reading and resources.
