Introducing Freedom Research

  • Karen McArdle
Chapter
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Education Research Methods book series (PSERM)

Abstract

This book concerns ‘Freedom Research,’ which is a term used to describe research that is free from orthodoxy, which adapts, or which knowingly critiques, accepted conventions about the ways in which research should be conducted. ‘Freedom Research’ is the name given to a form of educational research that seeks to be vigorous, rigorous, robust, authentic, imaginative, creative and above all ethical.
