Breakthroughs in Action Research through Poetry
Barrett, Terry
Educational Action Research, v19 n1 p5-21 Mar 2011
This paper discusses how major breakthroughs in generating, analysing and disseminating action research about problem-based learning were made through the medium of poetry. I used poetry in three ways: as data, as an interpretive device and as a reflective medium. Poetry helped me to disseminate my research in provocative, memorable and challenging ways. Action research is conceptualised as a triple process of doing, thinking and being that incorporates the powerful use of poetry. (Contains 1 figure.)
