Faculty Book: Kenneth Tobin

Kenneth Tobin and Shirley R. Steinberg
Doing Educational Research: A Handbook
Second Edition

(Sense Publishers, 2015)

This second edition explores a variety of critical issues and methodologies. Authors include some of the most influential voices from across the spectrum of career disciplines. The scholars provide detailed insights into dimensions of the research process that engage both students and experienced researchers with key concepts and recent innovations in the art of doing research. Doing Educational Research appears at a critical moment in which educational researchers are pushed to align with a pervasive scientism that embraces tenets of crypto-positivism. The chapters explore a variety of methodologies including action research, bricolage, ethnography, hermeneutics, historiography, media-based research, psychoanalysis, and conversation analysis, in a matrix of social theory, authentic inquiry, critical pedagogy, and differences in epistemology, ontology, and axiology.

Kenneth Tobin is a Presidential Professor of Urban Education at the Graduate Center.
