This edited volume addresses the different methods professionals use to promote a critical reflective and reflexive stance among practitioners, leading to both a reconceptualization of practice and its subsequent change. The goal of increased reflection in professional education is intended to expand approaches for professionals to work with diverse others. It is also intended to increase their levels of cognitive differentiation and depth of professional consciousness about themselves alongside diverse others in a rapidly changing world. This is an important issue in a range of applied professional programs, from education to medicine, social work to psychology, business to criminal justice, in nearly every country in the world.

Doctoral researchers are increasingly focusing on the social justice aspects of dissertation research problems and are often uncertain on how to incorporate societal change issues within a dissertation format. Due to the current climate, this interest in social justice is likely to continue to increase. Many aim to affect change within their discipline, workplace, or communities as they conduct dissertation research across doctoral program areas. Social Justice Research Methods for Doctoral Research presents contemporary social justice research method strategies and incorporates the aspects of social justice into research design. This major reference work illustrates how, why, and where to incorporate conventional and creative social justice research methodologies across both qualitative and quantitative approaches from various theoretical and conceptual perspectives. Covering topics such as community-based research, educational leadership, and cancel culture, this book serves as a dynamic resource for researchers, post-graduate students, researcher supervisors, librarians, methodologists, research program developers, and education administrators.

This book presents a model of Practitioner Inquiry (PI) as a systematic form of empirical research and provides a rationale for its suitability within a writing center context. Exploring the potential of writing centers as pedagogical sites that support research, the book offers an accessible model that guides both research and practice for writing center practitioners, while offering flexibility to account for their distinct contexts of practice. Responding to the increasing call in the field to produce empirical “RAD” (replicable, aggregable, data-driven) research, the author explores Practitioner Inquiry through explication of methodology and methods, a revisitation of collaboration to guide both practice and research, and examples of application of the model. Nordstrom grounds this research and scholarship in Hawaiʻi’s context and explores Indigenous concepts and approaches to inform an ethical collaborative practice. Offering significant contributions to empirical research in the fields of writing center studies, composition, and education, this book will be of great relevance to writing center practitioners, anyone conducting empirical research, and researchers working in tutor professionalization, collaboration, translingual literacy practices, and researchmethodologies.
