Action Research for Developing Social Workers' Research Capacity
Lunt, Neil; Fouche, Christa
Educational Action Research, v17 n2 p225-237 Jun 2009
We reflect on the action research process implemented in assisting the development of a culture of practitioner inquiry amongst social workers in social services agencies, and highlight the overall outcomes of the intervention. The paper outlines the rationale and process for undertaking an action research process with social services professionals in an attempt to stimulate practitioner research. It discusses the project experiences in two separate sections, particularly highlighting the ripple effects of the initiative, and the development of "networked mentoring" within the learning nest of the project. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
