Roberts notes a twist here: the ‘unit of analysis’ is increasingly that of the researcher and her outputs, rather than something associated with that which is claimed to be better known and understood because of good educational research. He concludes that addressing the loss of respect for the place of critique in higher education is a serious matter in the education of the next generation of education researchers and scholars, particularly when we consider what is formed and valued for its own sake in research communities.
Edu conceptions of research in education, offering arguments and reflections about how research in education has been, and might be, variously understood. For the purposes of this Companion, these challenges focus on core debates about the adequacies of a wide range of traditions, paradigms, designs, practices, truths and ‘lived experiences’ associated with working in this field. In effect, they centre on how we respond to the following types of question: • Which concepts and conceptions have come to dominate conventional and particular understandings of research in education, and why?
That we can recognise studies of education may contribute to both silences and conversations in logically distinctive and different ways to other forms and features of ‘the research conversation’, is to invite another question: of what is distinctive and shared about our conceptions and concepts of researching education, and educational research, across the sciences, humanities and arts. At the heart of this is the simple matter of recognising that it is not research that sustains education, but education that sustains research, in whatever field of inquiry.
