Doing work based research: approaches to enquiry for insider research

Costley, Carol ORCID logoORCID:, Elliott, Geoffrey and Gibbs, Paul ORCID logoORCID: (2010) Doing work based research: approaches to enquiry for insider research. Sage, London. ISBN 9781848606777. [Book]


With the growth of work based learning and practitioner research this book leads the way by addressing key issues faced by 'insider-researchers' - learners, practitioners and managers doing research projects in the organizations and communities in which they themselves work, or where they are already familiar with the setting.

The authors explore the implications of these research contexts, and discuss approaches and methodologies that work based researchers might adopt, with a particular focus on ethics - one of the key concerns for those undertaking a research project of this type.

This book is an authoritative and readable guide to the theory and practice of work based research. It is for anyone undertaking a research project based on work practice, including learners on postgraduate, undergraduate and doctoral programmes. Practitioners, managers and participants in work based courses or modules in education, healthcare and business management, will find it particularly useful.
