On Action Research
Action Research –> The practitioner AS researcher –> Practice as lab –> Researchers should justify themselves to practitioners, NOT the other way around.
either practical or critical –> change or implement –> systematized data recollection, reflection, reconsideration –> this spiral is not downward, or upward –> ever more complex with more and better considerations implemented –> sometimes a life-not-research-project.
Is every question asked through action pertinent and important? relevant? ethical? is every answer provided a valid reflection? Could we be asking ourselves to fulfill our own prophecy? A self-fulfilling prophecy? Can I be judge, jury, accuser and defendant? will my collaborators keep me in line? do I choose collaborators like I choose friends–people who I share a set of ideas, parameters and values with?
