Technology, Action Research and Workplace Learning

Author: 
Farren, Margaret and Crotty, Yvonne, co-editors
Credentials: 
Ph.Ds; senior faculty School of Education, Dublin City University (Ireland)

This is the first serious attempt to meld the use of technology, action research and workplace learning. The book will focus on practitioner-research accounts from a range of workplace settings e.g. education, nursing, community, industry and training. This is a scholarly monograph informed by mediation on practical applications and theoretical discussion. The authors articulate their values as they creatively engage in the use of technology to improve workplace practice. The contribution to knowledge is in the explanation by practitioners of their own learning as they show how they are influencing the learning of others in a range of workplace contexts, through the use of technology. The work is unique in its expertise in practitioner research, which allows a depth of qualitative approach. Research is drawn from a variety of settings including elementary,secondary,tertiary and adult education.

“ Highly recommended as an important tool in the Action Research movement in Education”
