The Action Research Dissertation by Gary L. Anderson; Kathryn G. Herr
Call Number: H62
Publication Date: 2005
The book provides an accessible roadmap that honors the complexity of action research. It will show that action research is appropriate not only for a dissertation, but also a deeply rewarding experience for both the researcher and participants. This book helps students understand the ways action research dissertations are different from more traditional dissertations and prepares students and their committees for the unique dilemmas they may face, such as validity, positionality, design, write-up, ethics, and defense of the dissertation. The Action Research Dissertation is a must-have resource for any student contemplating an action research project, thesis, or dissertation, and equally valuable to researchers undertaking and writing up their action research.
