Achieving Your Doctorate in Education
'anyone seeking doctoral status would benefit from dipping into or immersing themselves in this well written text. Clearly formatted pages with bold section headings make for quick and easy access to relevant passages where readers can watch the authors skilfully untangle the mysteries of research language such as 'theoretical framework', methodology and data analysis. I recommend Achieving Your Doctorate in Education to students and new supervisors involved in the doctoral research process' - ESCalate
This book is designed to help students to achieve an understanding of the practical and theoretical issues involved in a doctorate in education, and how to link their studies with their professional experience.
The chapters provide a detailed examination of all aspects of completing a doctorate in education: from research methodologies, to the analysis of data, reflection on the student's own experience, and the critical issues involved in writing a thesis. Detailed case study material is used throughout.
The editors are experienced supervisors of EdD courses and have created an essential companion for all education students pursuing a doctorate.
