Carly-Ann Haney; Christine A. Walsh – Canadian Journal of Action Research, 2023
Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is an overarching methodology taken up across various disciplines. Rather than a specific approach, CBPR encompasses varied action-based methodologies.

O'Neil, Peggy; Kteily-Hawa, Roula; Le Ber, Marlene Janzen – Canadian Journal of Action Research, 2022
As scholars work to decolonize educational research, new methodologies are needed. In this paper, we present our conceptual premises for a new paradigm, social portraiture, which combines participatory action research (Freire, 1982) and portraiture (Lawrence-Lightfoot & Hoffmann, 1997), and extends to include archival records and social art.…

Ramos, Ana Margarita; Briones, Claudia – Canadian Journal of Action Research, 2021
Based on our present working-experience with a Mapuche kimche (sage) and a logko (spiritual and political leader), we aim at intervening in broader debates on the intersubjective and intercultural production of knowledge. To do so, we pay special attention to contemporary mandates and pervasive conceptions about forms of practicing a better, more…

Langdon, Jonathan; Cameron, Sheena; Krieger, Natalie; Shani, Alhassan – Canadian Journal of Action Research, 2021
Participation by its very nature is iterative, meaning Participatory Action Research (PAR) must be responsive to the way participation manifests and what actions emerge from this participation. In the article that follows, we share the complex and intertwined stories of PAR in action in two social movement contexts in Ghana, as well as the…

Hall, Budd L.; Godrie, Baptiste; Heck, Isabel – Canadian Journal of Action Research, 2020
The focus of the article is on how knowledge is created, who creates knowledge, how knowledge is co-constructed, whose knowledge is excluded and how knowledge is being used to challenge inequalities and strengthen social movement capacity. This article grew from a fascinating conversation that the three of us had in Montreal in September of 2019.…

University standards for attaining tenure-track positions, tenure, advancement of rank, and successful periodic evaluation in universities in the Global North primarily center on attainment of research grants and publications.

Levitan, Joseph – Canadian Journal of Action Research, 2019
In this article, I discuss a pervasive ethical issue when undertaking action research (AR) projects with communities that have been historically marginalized: how outsiders' learned, normative Western thinking makes building equitable relationships difficult. I then offer strategies for researchers coming from privileged, outsider positionalities…

Orlowski, Paul – Canadian Journal of Action Research, 2019
There are similar assumptions between participatory action research (PAR) and teaching for social justice (TSJ). Much of this paper focuses on the influence of Brazilian educator Paulo Freire on both PAR and TSJ. Personal anecdotes with both PAR and TSJ from my twenty years of experience as a teacher educator/researcher in western Canada…

Forty percent of Portuguese and Spanish speaking students in Toronto do not complete high school (Brown, 2006).

Hogendoorn, Adrian – Canadian Journal of Action Research, 2017
A course wiki is an active environment in which students not only solve problems, but also find their own problems (Bransford, Brown, & Cocking, 1999). Wikis are novel, immersive environments requiring active participation, which enable students to build knowledge within a secure online setting (Hadjerrouit, 2011). This contribution traces a…
