The article discusses the different types of research approaches which are used by physical educators . The author explains what the different types are and how they have been and continue to be used in this area. He notes that educators seem to have stuck to the same types of approaches in the past and says that he feels that new and alternative approaches need to be examined and/or used by researchers in the future if educators want to improve themselves. He questions why this type of change has not come about before since changes in most other areas of learning and in life as a whole occur continually.
