"The first edition of Researching Higher Education has been a very helpful resource for those trying to make sense of the field of higher education. Malcolm Tight has accomplished a tour de force by updating and expanding that edition. This volume includes up-to-date analyses of recent higher education publications and thoughtful reflections on methodology and theory in higher education research. Requisite reading for novices to the field, but also for the experienced researchers trying to keep abreast of the developments in the field." Professor Jeroen Huisman, Director International Centre for Higher Education Management, School of Management, University of Bath, UK "The most comprehensive overview of research on higher education available, Researching Higher Education provides a multidisciplinary perspective of the field. This book will be valuable for students thinking about research as well as anyone wanting a perspective on research directions on higher education." Philip G. Altbach, Monan Professor of Higher Education, Director, Center for International Higher Education, Boston College, USA This authoritative book couples an overview of the principal current areas of research into higher education with a guide to the processes involved in undertaking such research. Comprehensively updated throughout, this new edition examines the current state of higher education research with brand new case studies and has been expanded to include North American work. The book also includes: Analysis of published research by topic, method, theory and level Detailed discussion of selected examples of published research Suggestions on under-researched topics Guidance on publication outlets Consideration is given to research design and questions, funding, progressing research projects, publication and dissemination.
