Action Research as a Congruent Methodology for Understanding Wikis: The Case of Wikiversity
Lawler, Cormac
Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2008
It is proposed that action research is an appropriate methodology for studying wikis, and is akin to research "the wiki way". This proposal is contextualised within the case of Wikiversity, a project of the Wikimedia Foundation. A framework for a participative research project is outlined, and challenges and implications of such a methodology are discussed. (Contains 1 figure.)
