Action Research Masterclass

Professor Jack Whitehead, Ms Yvonne Crotty and Dr. Margaret Farren will facilitate the Action Research Master class.

Research Capacity Building: Action Research in the Workplace

In its focus on practice, action research is rooted in the concerns of practitioners in real-world settings and in disciplined self-evaluation and reflection. Although the processes by which action research may vary, there is a common emphasis on critical and democratic social theory and a departure from unengaged research as the appropriate enquiry path for practitioners in practical situations.

The Masterclass will focus on the following areas:

       •The enquiry process of action research

       •Making public and validating what we are doing

       •Creating knowledge and improvement of practice

       •Visual and social media in disseminating research


Date: Thursday 30th June
Fee: €65         Time: 2pm - 6pm
