The revised and updated third edition includes the latest developments in autoethnography, data collection, analysis and dissemination, and is illustrated throughout with up-to-the minute examples of real world research. It embraces both sociological and anthropological approaches to qualitative educational research, using case studies from the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as the UK. ‘Education’ is treated broadly, including higher education and non-formal settings as well as schools. An indispensable introduction for students and novice researchers alike, the new edition continues to illustrate and sustain the increasing popularity of qualitative methods in educational research over the past thirty years, addressing the technological and digital changes that have occurred. -- Provided by publisher
Interaction in the classroom by Sara Delamont( Book )

41 editions published between 1976 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El entendimiento entre profesor y alumnos es esencial para la mejora de la enseñanza o el aprendizaje. Cualquier omisión al apreciar la complejidad de la interacción de la clase puede entorpecer los mejores propósitos de cambiar la educación. De ahí la importancia de los sistemas de observación de la interacción didáctica al facilitar éstos el registro y análisis de los invercambios verbates o no verbales que recíprocamente establecen el profesor y sus alumnos. Este libro presenta un esquema teórico para comprender la interacción en la clase, utilizando los hallazgos de la investigación, tanto a nivel sociológico como psico-social, para hacer comprensibles los procesos de la clase. Tras exponer los principios básicos del interac-cionismo simbólico, se examinan los recursos que profesores y alumnos pueden utilizar en cada interacción, así como sus actitudes y creencias, sus perspectivas recíprocas, para terminar centrándose en la forma en que los participantes negocian un mundo compartido y cómo actúan en él, es decir en las estrategias que adoptan profesor y alumno en el proceso de la interacción. La versión de la obra inglesa se completa con un Apéndice del profesor Villar Ángulo que ofrece una serie de aplicaciones de los sistemas de análisis de interacción en clase, refiriéndose, entre otras, a la aplicación en los programas de perfeccionamiento del profesorado." --Contratapa

Feminist sociology by Sara Delamont( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait de la couverture : "This book explores and celebrates the achievements of British feminist sociology in theory, methods and empirical research. Delamont outlines the barriers to the development of feminism and explores contemporary challenges. In doing so she provides an unravelled guide to the origins of feminism in the discipline of sociology, analyses the useasy relationships between feminists and the founding fathers, and elucidates the opportunities and challenges presented by postmodernism. Drawing empirically from a variety of topics, from sciences to stratification and from health and illness to the professions, the author illustrates the depth and vitality of feminist perspectives and suggests a research agenda for the next 30 years."

Contours of culture : complex ethnography and the ethnography of complexity by Paul Atkinson( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Contours of Culture the authors discuss the uses of various ethnographic methods in the study of culture, drawing on their field research with an opera company, Welsh artists, and classes on the popular Brazilian martial art capoeira. In their practical research and in the research of other scolars, they encounter complex problems and themes that often require new ways of organizing and conceiving cultural material, and even new ways of giving expression to phenomena that are only partially understood. This book is not only about the inherent complexities involved in ethnography; it is also about the kinds of opportunities available to researchers immersed in this complexity and how they might grasp cultural settings in their entirety."--Jacket
