Inquiry Into Practice
In this course, we explored various research methodologies, and drew upon relevant research and craft knowledge to design an inquiry/improvement project with the aim of creating more equitable, engaging environments for young people and adults. In the process, we engaged with colleagues and students, as both research participants and potential collaborators, to develop a shared vision for the work ahead and to more fully understand the systems/contexts in which we work. Emphasis was placed on synthesizing research/theory, connecting it to practice, and using both to craft a “theory of action.” In addition, this course explored ethics in participatory research and strategies for recording, organizing, and analyzing various types of data.
- How can we draw on relevant research and craft knowledge to design an inquiry/ improvement project with the aim of creating more equitable, engaging environments for young people and adults?
- How can we thoughtfully engage colleagues and students in our setting, as collaborators and participants, in the design and implementation of this work?
