Publisher's Synopsis

What are the most effective ways of planning and doing action research projects?

You and Your Action Research Project gives practical guidance on doing an action research project. Written for practitioners across professions who are studying on award-bearing courses, this book is packed full of useful advice and takes the reader through the various stages of a project, including:

  • starting your action research project
  • monitoring and documenting the action
  • techniques for dealing with the data
  • making claims to knowledge and validating them
  • making your research public: creating your living theory.

The book's practical approach will appeal to practitioners and will encourage them to try out new strategies for improving their work. It will also be essential reading for those resource managers in schools, colleges and higher education institutions who are responsible for providing courses and support.

This third edition of the bestselling book has been thoroughly updated and improved by a number of features, with new case studies from a wide range of disciplines, points for reflection and up-to the-minute information on current debates and ideas.
