Disciplined Study of the Problems of Practice: An Alternative to Craft- or Discipline-Based Educational Inquiry.
Tom, Alan R.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v23 n2 p7-22 May 1987
Examines two research orientations for departments of education--the craft-based model using generalists and former practitioners and the discipline-based model using specialists grounded in the humanities or social sciences. Criticizes weaknesses of both approaches and proposes a third model--the disciplined study of problems of practice. Includes 50 references. (MLH)
