Signposts for Educational Research CD-ROM is an indispensable resource for those embarking on research in education and related fields. By using a compelling metaphor of the researcher as traveller, the beginning researcher can navigate the way through the journey that is their research project.
The user can choose to investigate all the resources and possible routes, which are available, or follow a particular path. They are aided by an `expert' narrator who raises critical issues along the journey explaining the methods and approaches of a particular research strategy.
