Titel: Managers, spectators and citizens: where does 'theory' come from in action research?
Auteur: Winter, Richard
Verschenen in: Educational action research
Paginering: Jaargang 6 (1998) nr. 3 pagina's 361-376
Jaar: 1998-09
Inhoud: The importance of the question in the article title (where does 'theory' come from in action research?) is that it brings into focus the relationship between higher education institutions and the community (individuals and organisations) they serve. Academic conceptions of theory tend to be prescriptive - theory defining the meaning of action - and managerial conceptions of theory try to take advantage of this ('evidence-based practice'), but are bound to fail because the nature of social science theory is such that it cannot sustain claims to prescribe action. Theory in an action research process is: (1) a personal, improvised selection of resources; (2) reflexive and multi-disciplinary; (3) speculation on the hypothetical meanings of the immediately observable; and (4) integration of the ideas required for practical action. In this way, action research defines theory as a necessary process for the role of 'citizens' in a democracy.
