Knowledge Producing, Its Management and Action and Action Research
Hadfield, Mark
Educational Action Research, v13 n2 p301-312 Jun 2005
This article is based on a "think piece" produced as a resource for action researchers working within networks of schools. The original article considered the utility of key ideas within knowledge management to practitioner researchers attempting to share their research outcomes with other teachers in their network. This article, rather than addressing their utility to practitioner researchers, sets out to consider how they might help those involved in "commissioning" and supporting enquiry in schools. The support of these individuals, head teachers, senior managers and CPD coordinators, is vital if enquiry is going to develop in a school or network. They have to make decisions between competing approaches to professional development and the transfer of good practice. It goes on to consider how the theoretical literature on knowledge management can help this important group consider the potential utility of action research as a means of transferring, as well as generating, new knowledge and practices.
