At Room SC200A, The Concourse, NUI Galway

Organised by Community Knowledge Initiative (CKI)

Facilitated by Professor Jean McNiff, Independent Researcher

Event Details This event is a full-day workshop and will address issues regarding the principles and practices of action research, and how it differs from other approaches to research. The workshop will examine aspects of the research process such as developing research questions, collecting data and generating evidence, as well as the key issue of how to make judgements about the quality of action and research, and how to test the validity of knowledge claims. It will also consider how to write up your action research and make it public for wider use. The workshop will be interactive throughout, so be prepared to participate and have some fun.


Professor Jean McNiff is an independent researcher who works in a wide variety of settings, including the community and voluntary sector, schools, colleges and universities. She holds a part-time position as Professor of Educational Research at York St. John University in the UK and Visiting Professorships at the University of Tromsø, Norway, the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, South Africa, and Beijing Normal University and the Ningxia Teachers’ University, People’s Republic of China. In describing her work, Professor McNiff says “The main thing I try to do is share workable ideas in a way that enables people to say to themselves, ‘I can do this too’”.
