An Alternative Way of Responding to Powerful Ideas: Notes to Accompany the Poem Entitled "Five Principles of Quality in Narratives of Action Research"
Saunders, Lesley
Educational Action Research, v15 n1 p33-40 Mar 2007
This paper is written in a personal capacity and mainly takes the form of a poem--in five sections--composed as a response to some of the ideas in the article by Hannu Heikkinen and colleagues in this same issue of "Educational Action Research": "Action research as narrative: five principles for validation". The poem takes its title and structure from that article: its coming-into-being as a piece of work is described in the short introduction. As the introduction mentions, the author-poet has discussed, in previous papers, some of the connections and disconnections between the practices of educational research and poetry. The present paper offers actual work-in-practice that illustrates how these have been played out in one context--which was as poet-in-residence at a conference on inter-professional learning and practice in healthcare. The author is very keen to tempt others into dialogue on these issues. (Contains 3 notes.)
