Key Information for one assignment- Action Research Methodology
Action research, also known as Participatory Action Research (PAR), community-based study, co-operative inquiry, action science, and action learning, is generally used to improve conditions and practices. Our group’s methodological techniques for the research intervention are Establishing Contact, Identifying stakeholders or groups, and identifying key people. Establishing Contact In the early stages of a research project, facilitators are critical. To develop Contact with all stakeholder groups as quickly as possible, each group needs to be informed of events and feel that all members can contribute to the research processes. Identifying stakeholders is part of the duty of Research facilitators. Researchers should conduct a social analysis of the environment to ensure that all relevant groups are involved in the research process, such as males and females of all ages, social class, ethnic, racial, and religious groups. Lastly, identifying key people is an essential preliminary task for research facilitators to determine related organizations’ structure.
