Research Methods in Education

Have just downloaded the online book: Research Methods in Education edited by Louis Cohen, Lawrence Manion, Keith Morrison and Richard Bell. Really hoping that this will have some information that might relate back to my MA project.

As I’ve been going through the research phase of my MA I’ve been making lots of notes and saving readings into Mendeley. Although I divided readings into very concise folders it has got the point where I need to review this material to see if they still have relevance. This book is first on a very long list!


“Teaching at the heart of the system”

Ripples from Jo Johnson’s speech can be felt across HE this month as he introduces the notion of the Teaching Excellence Framework TEF. Similar to the REF it will aim to improve teaching quality.

Well worth a read as this is an issue we’ll be hearing much more about in the coming months.
