Action Research Tutorial 2 

2. Understanding Action Research - Overview

Action research is a form of deep inquiry into one’s practice that involves acting to address issues or problems followed by a systematic process for learning from the results of your actions.The action researcher intentionally introduces iterative cycles of change into a social system and, working closely with others, analyzes any transformations to the system, reflects on the process, and shares these understandings with others. Common to most, if not all, approaches to action research is the assumption that understanding is grounded in experience coupled with an analytic approach to evidence followed by reflective integration.
