This book is for anyone who wishes to improve university teaching and learning through systematic inquiry. It provides advice, but also a constructive critique of research methods and, in turn, the authors also make a contribution to the theories of research methodology. Topics covered include ontology, epistemology and engagement with academic literature, as well as research design approaches and methods of data collection. There is a keen focus on quality in both the analysis and evaluation of research and new models are proposed to help the new researcher. The authors conclude by examining the challenges in getting work published and close with some words on quality of thought and action. The ideas in the book come from the authors’ extensive experience in teaching research methods courses in higher education, health and the corporate sector, as well as several empirical research projects that have helped provide a methodology for higher education. It will be of particular interest to postgraduate students, academic developers and experienced academics from a wide variety of disciplines.

This book explores the multicultural and non-Western contexts behind the approaches, problems, and issues that arise in research methodologies when used in relation to educational administration and leadership. This volume argues that increasing internationalisation and diversity of the field requires research methods that better reflect the values, cultures, political systems, and conditions of non-Western communities and countries. Discussing the research methods, data collection practices, interpretive approaches and research ethics that produce more accurate and authentic results, the book looks at a number of theoretical frameworks and epistemological approaches that inform the development of such methodologies. Traditional methods like sharing circles and storytelling are explored, as well as an examination of ‘social space’ in designing methodology aimed at ‘spatial justice’ and an exploration of methods for Indigenous communities in East Asia. A valuable resource for researchers, scholars and students with an interest in multicultural education, the book will also appeal to academics interested in race, ethics, and educational research methods more broadly.
