Course Descriptions

TitleAction Research Methods II

In this course, students read about, directly engage in, and write three papers using 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-person action research methods. For example, students research and write an autobiography in which they examine their life to date in terms of developmental theory as well as the next developmental actions they may wish to take (1st-person research). Each student will also analyze voice recordings of parts of different class sessions and write a paper to be shared with the rest of the class about the group's issues in evolving toward a "community of inquiry" (2nd-person research). And each student will write a final paper on an action research topic of their own choosing in journal article format (3rd-person research, at best illustrating how 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-person research interweave and contributing to the student's qualifying paper or dissertation).

This course ran as LEAD 579 in Fall 2013.
