Action Research
Ultralab, like any other research centre, has to explain its ethos and working practices and a recent meeting in our host institution Anglia Ruskin University to tackle job matching and evaluation, found me on the defensive.
It is predominantly action enquiry that drives our thinking and on as large a scale as we can manage. Such projects as Tesco Schoolnet 2000, Talking Heads, and more recently Ultraversity have demonstrated our commitment to this mode of research, and I believe have achieved their aims well.
So on looking for good arguments, I was delighted to find this reasoned and balanced response to the challenges that this methodological stance invites from Glynis Cousins at the Centre for Higher Education Development at Coventry University - I would welcome more!
