The second Action Research Colloquium which brings together practitioners and action researchers from different fields such as business, industry, healthcare, education and tourism will be hosted by Waterford Institute of Technology on 24th & 25th May 2012. Building on the success of last year, the 2012 Colloquium will have a focus on sharing and exploring experiences working with action research or other collaborative research approaches.
The colloquium ethos is on opening conversations. The programme will have two streams: paper presentations and practice workshops. The colloquium theme for 2012 is ‘Collaborative Research - Values and Impact’. To facilitate the colloquium’s conversation focus, both streams will be structured to maximise time for discussion.
Additional workshops will address getting work published, building interest in action research across different fields and influencing policy. The Action Research Colloquium will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present their work and to engage with critical issues emerging in the field. The conference will have Professor Rami Shani and Dr Clare Rigg as keynote speakers.
The Action Research Colloquium should be of interest to:
·Researchers undertaking action research
·Supervisors of students engaging in action research
·Participants (academic and practitioners) in action research projects
