Summary Serlin stimulates and encourages students, faculty, and educational practitioners to place the pursuit of ideas at the epicenter of their research--from framing meaningful problems to identifying and addressing key challenges to the reporting and dissemination of their findings. As well as supporting readers to place the pursuit of ideas as the keystone of exemplary inquiry, the Handbook draws on the perspectives of scholars representing diverse fields within the field of education--from pre-kindergarten to elementary and secondary school to higher education--as well as qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods approaches to inquiry. --from publisher description
