Research is something many Early Childhood Studies students find intimidating. As a result this book has been designed with early childhood student in mind to help them through the research process.

The book covers the whole research journey exploring the different methodologies & principles as well as how to undertake a research project, making it a whole course companion. Following a linear and progressive structure, it logically helps students work through their course and introduces the topics to beginners in simple and clearly explained terms.  Once students have gained confidence, they are able to delve into the further reading suggestions and the research in focus boxes which look at international published examples of research to understand the real world effects and implications. Activities throughout help cement knowledge and case studies giving examples and scenarios of real student research show readers how to present their own findings. A brand new reader guide to research to aid navigation and a new chapter on research proposals are now also included.

This new Third Edition is also complemented by online resources that offer valuable additional resources for both instructors and students, including:

  • Videos per-chapter relating to chapter outcomes supported by critical questions

  • Flashcard glossary to consolidate learning

  • MCQs to test understanding

  • Testbank of questions for assignment setting

  • Free journal articles for wider reading

  • PowerPoint slides

If you would like to integrate these resources into your university?s learning management system, use the testbanks for assement or practice, and seamlessly direct your students to the freely available extra materials, please get in touch with your Visa hela texten

Deborah Albon worked as a nursery nurse, teacher and manager in a range of early childhood settings for nearly 20 years before working in Higher Education. Her research interests are primarily around food and drink provisioning in early childhood settings. In particular her work explores the way 'food events' offer a lens through which to examine adult-child (and family) relationships in early childhood settings. Deborah is widely published in this area and has  co-written the textbook Research Methods in Early Childhood with Penny Mukherji (soon to be in 3rd edition) as well as co-writing the book Negotiating Adult-Child Relationships in Early Childhood Research with Rachel Rosen. This latter book examines the messiness of navigating research relationships in the context of early childhood settings. 

Deborah worked at London Metropolitan University for 13 years and now works as a Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood Studies at University of Roehampton. She has considerable experience teaching research methods to both undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as supporting them with their dissertations.
