Action Research: A Personal Epiphany and Journey with Evidence-Based Practice
Ballard, Susan D.
Knowledge Quest, v43 n3 p44-48 Jan-Feb 2015
The author reveals in this article that her action research journey in the land of evidence-based practice was not her own idea. She writes that she was lured by the profession's finest scholars who advocated for reflective dispositions for practitioners to improve their practice and demonstrate the school librarian's critical role in teaching and learning. The author describes here how her journey into action research and evidence-based practice set the course, mapped the journey, and focused her practice through a lens of reflection.
