This is a two-day workshop that will integrate the concepts, processes and practical skills of action research. It will also provide participants with opportunities to practice some of the processes.
Action research is a research approach that enables outcomes of research (learning, understanding) and change (improvement) to be achieved. In other words change can be researched while it is being achieved. The research assists in the change.
The content of the workshop will be adjusted to meet the needs of the participants. However, the workshop is likely to address the following questions:
- What is action research?
- When is it appropriate to use it?
- How does it achieve high participation?
- How does it simultaneously bring about change?
- What are the sources of its research quality?
- How are the change and the research achieved together?
