The authors have worked together on understanding experiential, constructive learning styles, especially visual learning styles, increasingly within higher degree frameworks.

'At last we have a book making sense of practice-based approaches to research in art and design. This should be essential reading for all masters and doctoral students in the field.' Professor Rachel Cooper, Director, Adelphi Research Institute for Creative Arts and Sciences, University of Salford, UK. 'It is written in a warm, refreshing and stimulating style...the writing style employed by the authors is very readable and, throughout the book, illustrations are used to good effect...The six chapters that make up this book cover a wide range of issues...A number of different techniques for data reduction and data presentation are considered...Although this book is intended to be a support aid for research students in Art and Design, there is a considerable amount of generic material embedded within would make useful reading for other students embarking on research projects in other disciplines. It would also form a useful resource for people who are new to research supervision - it abounds with good advice and many useful references!'
