'As a first step towards developing a pedagogical culture in research methods this edited book is not only timely for universities (as they embrace a teaching-focused culture, generally), but also for those researchers who are building curricula in research methods with few texts to guide that process. As the chapter authors are drawn from various disciplines world-wide, their examinations of appropriate pedagogical practices and concrete suggestions for effective teaching strategies will be helpful to anyone teaching research methods.' Lisa M. Given, University of Alberta, Canada 'This book is an excellent guide to what works and what does not work when teaching research methods in the social sciences. I will definitely use what I learned reading this volume for designing my next research methods class, both graduate and undergraduate.' Teaching Sociology
