Reconceptualizing Qualitative Research: Methodologies without Methodology calls for qualitative research that is complex, situational, theoretically situated, and yet productive. Author Mirka Koro-Ljungberg challenges ideas about data, research design, and researcher responsibility that are often taken for granted, provoking readers to rethink beliefs, paradigms, processes, and methodological frameworks. Written in a clear, conversational style, the book compels readers to think about qualitative research differently—often in creative ways—and to continuously question existing narratives and dogmas.

Qualitative Research: Analyzing Life presents a fresh approach to teaching and learning qualitative methods for social inquiry—one that focuses on analysis from the very beginning of the text. By exploring qualitative research through a unique analytic lens, then cumulatively elaborating on methods in each successive chapter, this innovative work cultivates a skill set and literacy base that prepares readers to work strategically with empirical materials in their own fieldwork. Renowned authors Johnny Saldaña and Matt Omasta combine clear, accessible writing and analytic insight to show that analysis, in its broadest sense, is a process undertaken throughout the entire research experience.

Over the past ten years there has been increased interest in research on various aspects of teacher education, ranging from the preparation of teachers to continuing professional development. The increase of interest in how teachers become competent in very complex social settings is a result of a general recognition by researchers and policy makers alike that teachers are the key to any serious efforts at educational reform. This book addresses a variety of issues surrounding the field of inquiry into teaching practice that has become known as 'self-study', equivalent in many ways to the 'action research' movement, but at tertiary level.

In a decidedly anti-intellectual moment, exemplified by such recent phenomena as denials of science, defunding of universities, and distrust of "facts," Intra-Public Intellectualism examines the relationships among qualitative inquiry, truth telling and social activism. With contributions from scholars and activists around the world, the book addresses three key tensions in the field of social inquiry. The first tension concerns the proliferation of digital environments and virtual spaces, exploring how the "public" in public intellectualism might be reconsidered. The second tension concerns the ongoing critiques of truth and subjectivity, exploring how these disruptions change the work of the intellectual. The third tension concerns the growing scientific and philosophical rejection of static material worlds, exploring what becomes of social responsibility and justice when agency extends beyond human subjects. Intra-Public Intellectualism will be a must read for those interested in the roles of the intellectual in the academy and beyond and those keen on rethinking critical social inquiry for the twenty-first century. Perfect for courses such as: Introduction to Qualitative Research - Critical Qualitative Inquiry and Critical Theory - Social Context and Education - Foundations of Education - Cultural Studies and Public Pedagogy - Curriculum Theory - Social Justice and Education - Advanced Qualitative Methodology - Interpretivist Inquiry - Posthumanist Inquiry - New Materialist Inquiry - Arts-Based Inquiry

Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents' Lives invites middle and high school educators to move toward a broad, generative view of adolescent literacies. The aim is to capture adolescents' know-how and evolving expertise in an array of literacy contexts--all of them rich in language and meaning. This volume moves beyond a tendency to view current instructional recommendations--which focus on textbooks, tasks, and outcomes--as being apolitical or having universal applications. In these times of school reform and public accountability, this book calls on readers to bear in mind that issues of gender, race, ethnicity, and social class have everything to do with who is listened to as well as when and with what effect. It also calls on readers to remember that adolescents carry an almost infinite number of abilities and insights that can and should be invited to any work deemed important in classrooms. By concentrating on the social and cultural dimensions of adolescent literacies, the contributors to this volume have written in ways that move the adolescent learner up front and center stage.

This admirable, wide-ranging study grapples fearlessly with the mammoth topic of the Southern African family, and in particular, the positions and identities of women within the family, and their rights. Issues broached include: women's access to land and physical resources; human resources as a survival strategy; the intersection of family, law, rights and resources; methodological perspectives; and the family as site for social transformation. There is an explicit political and feminist agenda and urgent aim: to encourage the reader to rethink the family; to reconceptualise its meaning; and contribute to the debate that surrounds the next phase of societies in change. The narrative propels the reader along in the genuine anticipation that despite difficulties, new ground is breaking and new ideas emerging, which will interest firstly the Southern African woman, but equally, anyone interested in the topical and contentious issue of the family and its possibilities.

Inspired by the idea of documentation as a valuable tool for making learning visible, pedagogical narration offers an opportunity to move beyond checklists and quick answers to a more complex understanding of how children learn, and how teachers might facilitate and support that learning in innovative ways. The authors use stories they collected during a collaborative study to offer a range of possibilities for alternative childhood pedagogies. Cutting edge, yet practical; detailed in its analysis, yet inspiring, this book is a boon to the field of early childhood and primary education studies.

Employing Critical Qualitative Inquiry To Mount Nonviolent Resistance

This volume engages researchers with the notion of critical qualitative inquiry (CQI) as a direct practice of resistance. As female educators and researchers who have (through our politically activist sister) been referred to as "Nasty Women" in the US presidential debates, we believe that it is our responsibility to respond through our inquiry to the violent reinscription of intersecting forms of injustice and marginalization. The purposes of this volume are therefore (1) to demonstrate personal actions taken by researchers to deal with thoughts/feelings of despair as well as how to move toward survival, and (2) to explore historical, new, and rethought research and activist methodologies (frameworks) as counter measures broadly and for public education specifically. Examples of CQI as resistance in response to the particular neoliberal patriarchal, whitelash presidential election event are provided by featured authors. Additionally, resources related to activist scholarship are provided. These frameworks, resources, and perspectives are also useful for future research in reaction to neoliberalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy.

Reconceptualizing Mentoring At Work

A developmental network perspective is used to reconceptualize mentoring at work. We propose that individuals depend on multiple concurrent relationships for mentoring support. These relationships may span organizational and hierarchical boundaries and may or may not include one or more "mentors", as traditionally conceived. Our reconceptualization builds on recent momentum in the mentoring research that has suggested alternatives to traditional forms of mentoring, and it accounts for changes observed in the current employment context. We develop a typology of the different sets or "constellations" of developmental relationships individuals may form that is based on two core dimensions: (a) the diversity of individuals' constellations and (b) the level of relational engagement individuals exhibit in their developmental relationships. We offer propositions regarding the quality of the relationships that we expect will characterize different types of constellations, the antecedents to different constellation configurations, and the effects of having such constellations for the protʹegʹe's personal learning and career.
