I’ve looked at the course notes and they’re very impressive. Reading What is Action Research? I realised that an awful lot of what I do in my work loosely follows this model – no two projects are quite alike. Inevitably in a work environment, the focus is always on the “action” part of the cycle – not for the first time I’m thinking that more emphasis on reflection would be useful…
So what might I like to get from studying this course?
A theoretical model to put a context around my project-based learning at work
Practical tools to help me build in reflective thinking
An opportunity to see if I can focus on a topic long enough for anything more than a shallow understanding (!)
An opportunity to practice existing skills
