Website Review :
This is the website of Southern Cross University
This is a stunningly useful website and lives up to its
claims: This is the introduction to a series of occasional pieces on action
research methodology. The pieces appear at semi-regular intervals
of the action research methodology mailing list, "armnet-l".
The intention there is that the occasional pieces may provide a trigger
for deeper discussions about methodology. They are collected here
as they appear on armnet, for ease of access.
There is an index to the pages,and I particularly recommend for teacher
researchers - but try the later sections too:
1 "Good" research
2 What is action research?
8 Cycles within cycles
9 Cyclic critical reflection
10 Emergent methodologies
11 Participation (1)
12 Participation (2)
13 Rigour (1)
Bob Dick has brought together a wide and generous resource
- look out for the action research on-line courses offered at Southern
Cross and use the sections on qualitative and quantitative research to
contextualise and inform your ideas as a practitioners. Each one of the
sections is highly informative.
