Living in the Basement of the Ivory Tower: A Graduate Student's Perspective of Participatory Action Research within Academic Institutions
Moore, Janet
Educational Action Research, v12 n1 p145-162 2004
As academic interest grows around participatory action research there is a need to reflect on the ways in which universities are adapting to the presence of alternative research methodologies. This article examines the rapidly expanding field of participatory action research (PAR) as it relates to academic involvement in community research and dialogue. The article concentrates on the advantages and disadvantages of the PAR approach as a research practice in academic institutions. Ultimately, this article raises a number of questions for academics to consider including the possible outcomes and implications for implementing PAR within graduate school curriculum.
