Avci, Bulent – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
This article examines research methodologies for classroom-based research in light of the complementary ideas of Freire and Habermas. After reflecting on classroom-based participatory action research in a secondary mathematics classroom, I discuss the suitability of critical participatory action research in critical mathematics education. Critical…

Sakata, Nozomi; Oketch, Moses; Candappa, Mano – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
This paper offers a critical analysis of the Comparative Case Study (CCS). While CCS provides a holistic methodological framework for case-based research, it is not free from drawbacks. One criticism the approach may receive, ironically, is the lack of criticism it encounters. Another critique can include its naming, as the name 'comparative case…

Macqueen, Suzanne; Patterson, Carmel – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
The need for researcher reflexivity in qualitative research, especially where data are gathered through interview, is well documented. Studies employing a range of theoretical frameworks and methodologies are similarly affected, with researchers needing to consider specific contextual factors related to the design nuances of each project. This…

Byman, Reijo; Maaranen, Katriina; Kansanen, Pertti – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
From the end of the 1970s, all teacher education programmes have been a part of academic higher education in Finland. Thus, TE has been implemented in universities and all Finnish comprehensive and upper-secondary school teachers have a master's degree. Research methods courses have been an essential part of teacher education courses for over 40…

Fassbender, William J. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
Education researchers have traditionally understood video as a useful tool for collecting and analyzing data in order to study a vast array of learning ecologies. However, video scholarship in fields outside of education, namely anthropology and sociology, have been able to put video to greater use by conducting studies that take advantage of the…

Prevett, Pauline S.; Black, Laura; Hernandez-Martinez, Paul; Pampaka, Maria; Williams, Julian – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
A novel approach to integrating Cluster Analysis (CA) within qualitative inquiry is presented, grounded in a large, unstructured dataset from open and rather unstructured interviews. This dataset was previously subjected to typical (theory sensitive) thematic analyses. Transformed into quantitative binary matrix structures, the CA offers…

Dalland, Cecilie P.; Klette, Kirsti; Svenkerud, Sigrun – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
The use of video recordings as a data source in qualitative research presents challenges when it comes to selecting time scales. Here, we discuss the implications of selecting time scales with regard to the interpretations and conclusions of a classroom event. The analysis draws on data from the PISA+ project, a large-scale video study of six…

Ramlo, Susan E. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Within mixed methods research, a key issue is how to mix qualitative and quantitative research orientations. Similar debates arise within a mixed method called Q methodology [Q] that has an 80-year history and strong qualitative leanings. Q is often identified with the sorting of statements and the factor analysis (grouping) of people with similar…

Chew, Adrian W. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Various abductive research approaches have been foregrounded in the literature in recent years. This paper joins the literature on engaging with abductive research approaches, and proposes the term of 'informed guessing' as a way to think about enacting educational research abductively to allow new concepts, ideas and insights to come into being.…

Sikes, Pat; Hall, Mel – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Auto/biographical narrative research that touches on 'sensitive' areas can elicit accounts that researchers may find distressing and threatening to their emotional and psychological health. In this paper we offer a 'confessional tale' through which we consider our experiences of investigating a sensitive and painful topic from the perspectives of…

Skilling, Karen; Stylianides, Gabriel J. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
In this paper, we investigate using vignettes in educational research, particularly for eliciting value-laden constructs such as teacher beliefs and understandings and how these influence teacher practices. Drawing on research where vignettes have been used as the central instrument for data collection, we argue that methodological consistency is…

Werler, Tobias Christoph; Baraldsnes, Dziuginta – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This paper explores the historic ideas and practice of outdoor education, as developed in Jean Jacques Rousseau's "Émile", and realized by Adolf Reichwein's rural teaching practice. We aimed at developing a comprehensive research design, triangulating different qualitative data (text and photos). In the paper, we explore how the idea of…

Khwaja, Tehmina; Mahoney, Kerrigan – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Research on new literacies and technology can be a challenging prospect for researchers due to the emerging nature of the subject. In this article, we present our experience using an innovative methodological technique that facilitated our narrative inquiry into the attitudes and perceptions of school leaders about media literacy. We provided our…
