The Future of Educational Research: Perspectives from Beginning Researchers provides a snapshot of research across a diversity of fields in education conducted by beginning researchers. The five main sections of the book cover research into policy and curriculum, teachers' experiences, educational technologies, the teaching and learning of mathematics, and literacy development. The chapters make valuable contributions to knowledge of contemporary issues in education. They illustrate research topics and methodologies that will underpin and provoke future research, and demonstrate the potential of these beginning researchers to become leaders in their chosen fields of educational research. The chapters also demonstrate the breadth of research topics being undertaken in educational research today. For supervisors and research higher degree students the book provides samples of research higher degree student writing that not only exemplify approaches to presenting research but also support the value of publication at all stages of study.
