New Edited Book: Research with Children and Young People in Physical Education and Youth Sport

22 Jan 2024

Well done to Dr Fiona Chambers and colleagues on the recent publication of their new edited book.

This innovative book presents a new framework for researchers in the field of physical education and youth sport. By examining the complex interplay between values, voice and ethics within the research process, it showcases how the CREATE Principles for Research Design can facilitate meaningful research with/for children and young people.



Adopting a design thinking approach – and underpinned by principles of youth voice – the book rethinks educational research with children and young people and offers a new framework for the field. With contributions from leading international experts, this book exemplifies how the CREATE Principles for Research Design can be applied in practice across a range of diverse populations and contexts through ten in-depth case studies. Reflecting contemporary issues in the field, such as gender, race and ethnicity, disability and social disadvantage, these case studies take the reader through the process of applying the CREATE principles as a reflective lens through which to consider research design with/for youth.

Designed to support aspiring and experienced researchers alike, this book equips readers with valuable ideas and tools to enhance their research praxis and shape meaningful and relevant research with/for children and young people.
