Transcript

  • 1. Thank You for coming Research that helps you develop your world: Action Research, moving research forward Discovery Measureable Action Reflection
  • 2. Measurement is delimited by time 1. What is now true 2. What were the perceptions of people about the past 3. What documents show us about the past 4. What data show us in evaluation of a time- bound event
  • 3. Action Research moves research forward in time
  • 4. Requirements for Success •Discovery cycle has to include review of literature so you know what is likely to happen and have ideas how to measure it •Your journal here becomes your baseline measurement – journal = data •Measurement needs to be planned in advance and carried out simultaneously to all action = rigorous and ethical procesdures •Helpful to do this in groups if possible = internal validity •Reflection at best is double looped = on what happened and on how you contributed to what happened. •Useful to do this in groups as well = participatory action research
  • 5. ALL THESE REALLY SOLID IDEAS CAN REALLY MESS UP WHEN CONFRONTED WITH A TYPICAL (US) UNIVERSITIES DISSERTATION CYCLE However…
  • 6. Literature Review Design Research & Write Proposal Ethical Review Data Collection Data Analysis and Final Writing ? ? ?? ??
  • 7. Problem What Part of the Cycle Goes Where? Literature Review Design Research & Write Proposal Ethical Review Data Collection Data Analysis and Final Writing ?
  • 8. Literature Review Design Research & Write Proposal Ethical Review Data Collection Data Analysis and Final Writing
  • 9. Most People Decide It Tips Like This… Problem: AR really needs to be iterative, this allows for only one cycle Literature Review Design Research & Write Proposal Ethical Review Data Collection Data Analysis and Final Writing ?
  • 10. Literature Review Design Research & Write Proposal Ethical Review Data Collection Data Analysis and Final Writing
  • 11. So Now You Make It Iterative and Put Three Cycles In… Problem: How Do You Write It Up in a Way That Passes Your Universities Guidelines or the Expectations of Professors Who Don’t Understand the Methodology? Literature Review Design Research & Write Proposal Ethical Review Data Collection Data Analysis and Final Writing
  • 12. Most Common Answer… Write it up as a standard qualitative research design, justifying journal data as one source of baseline and reflective as one source of outcome perceptions. Code as normal with inter-rater reliability
  • 13. But that makes you crazy Because you know a lot of the richness in your design and your work gets lost
  • 14. Another Answer…. Do the study as part of your work (thereby not needing ethical approval) – these data are owned by your employer and that body gives you permission to use them – your study becomes archival
  • 15. This makes you less crazy It is hard though to keep what was the “pilot” study and what is your archival study
  • 16. Best Solutions 1. Work these issues out with your supervisor ahead of time and get their advocacy with the rest of the committee, the ethical review and the unversity 2. Go to a university that supports action research
