Metaphors for, in and of Education Research draws on a variety of philosophical, theoretical and methodological approaches exploring metaphors as instruments for describing, understanding and inspiring education research.
Key themes addressed by authors in this collection include: how metaphors provide new understandings of the philosophical assumptions underlying education research; how metaphors provide new perspectives on methodological issues in education research; and how metaphors evoke cognitive, affective and volitional responses to the experience of conducting or participating in education research.
The book includes chapters written by academics with experience in various education sectors including middle, high school and tertiary education. Areas of academic expertise include doctoral study, literacy and learning, special education, educational partnerships and leadership, and applied linguistics.
