Abstract

Often, researchers who wish to carry out a research project new, different and vital ed to look at the world's scientific literature to be sure that this project is very significant. And this is the greatest difficulty. Sometimes, however, the project "out of the ordinary" lack sufficient sources of data and appropriate references to enable the researcher in charge of education to proceed with confidence. The caution it is therefore necessary. However, these two realities expose the researcher in education at the difficulties of diachronic order (transformations in education) and synchronic (the contexts in education), since the quality of research is not played only in terms of subject matter but especially in terms of 'methodological innovation and character plurifocal and innovative techniques and instruments used in research that are characterized for being cultural. Those who strive to produce contaminations then methodologies, attempting to emerge from one who works in a certain specific cultural context, makes it possible to concretely contamination profitable. Even within the limits procedural, technical and validation, such contamination enables researchers from different countries to share the same "ground search" becoming "common area" of scientific exchange between different cultures and that is capable of powering a gradual improvement in educational level. It is giving rise to a metissage methodology, which can sometimes be considered limiting and restrictive, but that certainly is a way to identify new devices, techniques and applications and to create new interpretations of the "research process", process", which includes the assumptions and values that serve as the basis of rational research, standards or criteria that the researcher uses to interpret the data and to arrive at conclusions (Bailey, 1982). From here opens the way for inter-culturalization and hybridisation of the research which could lead to the renewal of forms of educational research (Nuzzaci, 2009; Nuzzaci, 2011). The contribution explores the spaces of sharing and intersection of such contamination, highlighting the traits and characteristics of research that stems from the "hybrid methodology" and in the latter it is the foundation of a new identity thus giving rise to a feeling which created new shoots that grow bringing new life to the international educational community.
