The Action Research Planner (4th Ed., Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 2014) Doing critical participatory action research

Langue : Anglais

Couverture de l’ouvrage The Action Research Planner
A fully-updated and reimagined version of the classic book by Stephen Kemmis and Robin McTaggart​, now joined by Rhonda Nixon, The Action Research Planer is a detailed outline on how to develop an action research project. It has a variety of appendices with helpful advice on how to decide what to do a project on, how to form an action research group, how to collect evidence and so forth.  Unlike earlier editions, The Action Research Planner focuses specifically on Critical Participatory Action Research. The authors’ view of action research (critical participatory action research) occupies a particular (critical) niche in the 'family' of action research. The book also elaborates a new view of 'participation' (based on Jurgen Habermas's notion of a 'public sphere') and a new view of 'practice'. The Action Research Planer is an essential guide to planning and undertaking action research.
