ASH EDU 675 Week 2 DQ 1 Action Research What it Means to You (NEW)
Action Research - What it Means to You
You already learned that action research is a type of inquiry used to describe
professionals studying their own practice for the purpose of inspiring the change
process. According to the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory as cited by
("Action Research", n.d., para 1), "Action research is inquiry or research in the
context of focused efforts to improve the quality of an organization and its
performance. It typically is designed and conducted by practitioners who analyze the
data to improve their own practice." This week you begin the implementation of
your action research. Congratulations! You have spent a considerable amount of
time in the thoughtful planning and development of your study. Now is the exciting
time to begin collecting data. Furthermore, in one of the discussions in Week Four,
you explain key leadership styles, strategies and responsibilities of the school
personnel, community organization, or own children with which you are observing
during the implementation of your action research project.
Initial Post: Include a paragraph describing your interpretation of the Action
Research (n.d.) quote above for this discussion including how it specifically relates to
your action research proposal. Then, in one-to-two paragraphs, explain the ways you
envision your research might assist with implementing the change you desire in
your selected organization. Start by stating briefly what the intervention/innovation
is then explain the ways you envision it implementing a desired change.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two peers. In responses, consider asking
questions of your peers about their responses to encourage further conversation.
Select responses that resonate with your own thoughts and comment on similarities
to your own initial post. Provide specific recommendations and feedback regarding
their actual intervention/innovation. Comment on their thoughts regarding how
their research might promote the positive change they envision. Ask questions if
anything is unclear to you. Again, though two responses is the basic expectation, for
deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any
comments or questions others have given to you including the instructor before the
last day of the discussion to further the conversation while also giving you
opportunities to demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real
world experiences with this topic.
