Welcome to the Action research discussion group! You can use this space to discuss or ask questions about anything related to Action research, or make others aware of what kinds of resources there are out there to discuss. Please also add any comments or suggestions about this group - would it be better as a reading group perhaps?

Discussion[edit | edit source]

"Action research is research the wiki way" - this is a statement I'm interested in exploring. (I've written a journal article on this that will hopefully be published and made freely available soon.) Essentially, my argument comes down to that both action research and wikis are 1) collaborative/participative, 2) iterative (ie continually changing through step-changes), 3) potentially empowering (enabling people to do more than they could have done previously). This is very briefly put - but I'd like to throw it out there to see what other people think. (And please feel free to say you don't know what I'm talking about!)

Interested participants[edit | edit source]

  • Cormaggio (Cormac Lawler) - I'm a PhD student at the University of Manchester, and my PhD is on Developing Wikiversity through action research. I'm very interested in exploring how action research can be used here in Wikiversity - for me, action research is akin to doing research the wiki way - which I've raised for discussion above.
