The international dimension of research in education signals a paradigm shift in thinking about educational research in general. This collection of essays by a group of prominent scholars in several fields, including human resource education, early childhood, educational evaluation, interpretive research, arts education, anthropology, and philosophy of education, is a cutting-edge publication that defines new theoretical and methodological directions in international education research. Research in International Education consists of both conceptual chapters and chapters based on empirical work that together address methodological/theoretical issues involved in international education research, contexts of research, and research in informal and formal settings.
