When Practice Takes Precedence: Conceptions of Inquiry and the Link to Ethical Posture
McArdle, Karen; Birchley, Jacinta; Bruce, Jayne; Hurrell, Alison; Paterson, Sandra; Stephen, Mary
Educational Action Research, v23 n1 p68-84 2015
Using participatory action research (PAR), this paper explores the ethical practice of students engaged in practitioner research in a higher education context. Using narrative enquiry, the paper explores the participants' experiences of practitioner research, including ethical dilemmas that resulted from a conflict of values between the practitioner and research roles. We postulate a multi-dimensional approach to ethical practice known as "ethical posture" emerging from our consideration of conceptions of inquiry that resulted in contrasting ethical behaviour.
