I was up at 5am again this morning working on my Ed.D.? It’s hard when it’s so dark and it’s the end of term…
After looking at various research methodologies, I think I’m going to go for a combination of a hermenutic, philosophical and pragmatic approaches in the dialectical tradition. It could all end up a mess, but I think I’m on to something: digital literacies are culturally and very specifically situated, but have broader elements which can be discussed, synthesized and made sense of.
Here’s what I’ve been looking at today – all from the Handbook of Complementary Methods in Education Research:
- E. Bredo – Philosophies of Educational Research
- N.C. Burbules & B.R. Warnick – Philosophical Inquiry
- F.M. Connelly & D.J. Clandinin – Narrative Inquiry
- C. Genishi & T. Glupczynski – Language and Literacy Research: Multiple Methods and Perspectives
