Social work & developmental approaches to Action Research—A conversation with Rosalie Dwyer

Categories: Action Research, Research, Research Roles, Research Skills


The MethodSpace focus for October was on Action Research, and we are continuing to share posts on these participatory methods. November is Academic Writing Month with a 2020 focus on Publishing Trends (and what they mean for academic writers.) You can find the unfolding series of Action Research posts through this link, and you can find the AcWriMo posts through this link.

In this video, Ernie Stringer talks with Rosalie Dwyer, a highly experienced and award-winning social worker. They speak to issues related to developmental approaches to action research, featured in the 5th Edition of the Action Research text.

Rosalie speaks of the importance of developing relationships that are a key feature of developmental work—emphasizing the need to engage people as central participants in any actions to be taken. Ernie extends that to describe how small beginnings may open opportunities to programs of research and development that make a significant difference to people’s lives.
