Contemporary action research is a robust approach for the co-creation of both practical knowledge and new theoretical concepts about, for instance, organizational dynamics, social innovation, healthcare transformation and community development. It is a pragmatic and participatory approach in which academic researchers collaborate with managers and professionals to inquire into issues of high mutual concern.
PhD students who participate in this Action Research Workshop, will obtain practical understanding of how to develop meaningful, original, and rigorous knowledge through studying the change processes that they also facilitate.
Day 1: 11 November 2021 (morning and afternoon)
Day 2: 18 November 2021 (morning and afternoon)
The workshop will be conducted online through Microsoft Teams and consists of two 1-day sessions. During and in between sessions there is ample opportunity and time for students to apply learnings to their own action research study and to subsequently reflect on those experiences in plenary conversation.
