Abstract

Action research is a methodology in which a professional improves or develops practice in a cyclical way, by planning the next step of action as a result of analysis of the previous action or development. It therefore involves reflective practice and is ideally suited to educators who wish to experiment upon their own practice. It is distinct from other forms of research in that the professional looks at his or her own practice, and develops an aspect of it, rather than producing new knowledge. However, there is debate about what action research is, and what it is not; the ‘quant-qual dichotomy’; arguments against it as a methodology in terms of locus of dispute and mitigation, and the role of the researcher. How can we ensure the robustness of our approach?
