Description:

Action research is the practical way of looking at your own work to check that it is as you would like it to be. Avoiding the pitfalls of empirical research, action research is the self-analytical approach to ensuring that a better understanding of yourself, results in self-developing of both yourself and your work.Action Research: Principles and Practiceaims to address the key issues surrounding this idea. It raises issues about how action research is theorised and how practitioners position themselves within the debate. It discusses the importance for educators of understanding their own work and shows how their educative influence can lead to the development of good orders in formal and informal learning settings and in the wider community. This new edition also discusses new ideas on methodologies, ways of assessing quality, the scope and range of action research in discussions about globalisation, sustainability and cross-cultural understandings.Now in its third edition which marks the transformation of action research into new fields and perspectives, this book covers:Multimedia and print-based representation case studiesMethods of action researchCross-discipline approaches to action researchEvaluations on the values of action research.This internationally-focused text from the best-selling author Jean McNiff will be of interest to anyone working in the education sector that is looking to advance their research skills and exert influence across their learning setting.
