  Finding a voice - thinking with others: a conception of action research
 
 
Title: Finding a voice - thinking with others: a conception of action research
Author: Winter, Richard
Appeared in: Educational action research
Paging: Volume 6 (1998) nr. 1 pages 53-68
Year: 1998-03
Contents: The main theme of this article is that action research is about seeking a voice with which to speak one's experience and one's ability to learn from that experience. It is also about helping others (our students, our patients, our clients) to find their own voices. Action research is decentralising the production of knowledge. To begin with, the theme is given a historical context by presenting a general contrast between pluralism and managerialism, and the next section articulates the nature of action research by contrasting 'participatory' with 'hierarchical' structures of knowledge. The next phase of the argument is that an 'educational' model of action research (emphasizing continuous self-questioning) does not mean that action research lacks 'criteria'. The final section makes some suggestions about action research's inherent criteria by showing how the overall purpose of 'finding a voice' and of 'thinking with others' requires a particular formulation of the main phases of the inquiry process.
