Qxd 40 9/28/2005 6:17 PM Page 40 ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ACTION RESEARCH • technical rational (often called empirical) research • interpretive research • critical theoretic research. Each of these paradigms, or approaches, has different views about the nature of knowledge, how it is acquired, and how it is used. Technical rational (empirical) research This form of research assumes that: • The researcher stays outside the research field to maintain objectivity. Knowledge generated is uncontaminated by human contact.

Action research is this kind of generative transformational process, where claims to improved learning and practice generate further learning to improve practice. The question therefore arises, who evaluates what? In traditional interpretive approaches, which work from a spectator’s point of view, an external researcher makes judgements on what other people are doing. From a selfstudy perspective, the researcher evaluates their own work. This calls for considerable honesty, and the capacity to listen to and act on critical feedback.

It has always been linked with social change for social justice. Noffke (1997) says that the term ‘action research’ appeared in a 1961 speech by Martin Luther King. An emphasis on learning by Whitehead (1976) shows how people can learn to act in ways that improve learning while connected to democratic processes of evaluation. It is generally understood that action research began with the work of John Collier in the 1930s, acting as commissioner for Indian affairs, and Kurt Lewin in the 1940s. Lewin, a Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany who worked as a social psychologist in the US, believed that people would be more motivated about their work if they were involved in decision-making about how the workplace was run.
