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. The chapters are punctuated throughout by the voices of authors who wrestle with the formidable challenges of framing and conducting and reporting meaningful inquiry. New to the Second Edition: -The Handbook has been re-conceptualized into three parts: Part One.Exploring Ideas: Embracing Inquiry and the Craft of Framing Meaningful Problems- Part Two, Pursuing and Sharing Ideas: The Design and Conduct of Inquiry and the Communication of Results- and Part Three, Engaging Ideas: Reflections of Scholars. -Section II has been completely revised to include new chapters focused on formulating meaningful problems. -Eleven new chapters have been added on the following topics: developing and framing meaningful problems- reviewing literature and formulating problems- research design in qualitative/quantitative/mixed methods- integrating education inquiry across research traditions- writing, voicing, and disseminating research- using historical methods- appropriate scaffolds for new researchers- conducting research on leadership and change in education- and the arc of research. -Chapters by the following scholars have been added: Laura Dunek, Marybeth Gasman, Michael R. Harwell, Erica Rosenfield Halverson, Richard Halverson, Elfrieda H. Hiebert, Carolyn Kelly, Karen Seashore Louis, Ronald C. Serlin, and William G. Tierney.

About Clifton F. Conrad

Clifton F. Conrad has been Professor of Higher Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison since 1987. He previously taught at the University of Denver (1975-1977), The College of William and Mary (1977-1981), and the University of Arizona (1981-1987)-where he also served as a Department Chair and as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. His research program is centered on college and university curriculum-at the undergraduate and graduate levels, in the liberal arts and sciences as well as in professional fields. Books that he has authored or co-authored include The Undergraduate Curriculum, A Silent Success: Master's Education in the United States, and Emblems of Quality in Higher Education: Developing and Sustaining High-Quality Programs. While he has published quantitative studies in journals such as the American Educational Research Journal and the Journal of Education Finance, the majority of his research has been fueled by qualitative approaches to inquiry-work that appears in journals ranging from Sociology of Education to the Journal of Higher Education. A former President of the Association for the Study of Higher Education, since 1980 he has been a key expert witness and consultant to the U.S. Department of Justice and the Office of Civil Rights (U.S. Department of Education) in major civil rights cases and inquiries involving race and gender in higher education in nine states. Two of these cases led to landmark decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court, including one in which his scholarship was cited approvingly. Ronald C. Serlin is an Emeritus Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He teaches courses in nonparametric statistics and the philosophy of science and statistics. His mastery in teaching earned him a Chancellor's Distinguished Teaching Award early in his career. His expertise as a statistical consultant has led to long and fruitful collaborative efforts with colleagues in the School of Nursing and the Departments of Neurology, Art Education, and Journalism
