Research and the Early Years Practitioner-Researcher
Solvason, Carla Louise
Early Years: An International Journal of Research and Development, v33 n1 p90-97 2013
This paper challenges the approach that we traditionally take to research (in the realm of Early Childhood) within our colleges and universities. It asks why we have obediently adopted an outmoded and entirely inappropriate approach to research which disempowers and alienates the practitioners that we are working with. This paper calls for Early Childhood tutors to challenge existing regimes in order to introduce students to research that is both meaningful and purposeful for their practice. It embeds purpose and ethicality at the heart of practitioner research. (Contains 1 figure.)
