Since its first publication, Action Research: Principles and Practice has become a key text in its field. This new updated edition clearly describes and explains the practices of action research and its underlying values, and introduces important new ideas, including:

  • all professionals should be reflective practitioners;
  • they should produce their personal theories of practice to show how they are holding themselves accountable for their educational influences in learning;
  • the stories they produce become a new people’s history of action research, with potential for influencing new futures.

This new edition has expanded in scope, to contribute to diverse fields including professional development across the sectors and the disciplines. It considers the current field, including its problems as well as its considerable hopes and prospects for new thinking and practices. Now fully updated, this book contains:

  • A wealth of case-study material
  • New chapters on the educational significance of action research
  • An overview of methodological and ethical discussion

The book is a valuable addition to the literature on research methods in education and nursing and healthcare, and professional education, and contributes to contemporary debates about the generation and dissemination of knowledge and its potential influence for wider social and environmental contexts.

Practitioners across the professions who are planning action research in their own work settings will find this book a helpful introduction to the subject while those studying on higher degree courses will find it an indispensable resource.

About the Author:

Jean McNiff is Professor of Educational Research at York St John University, UK. She also holds visiting professorial positions at Beijing Normal University and Ningxia Teachers University, People’s Republic of China; the University of Tromsø, Norway; and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, South Africa. She has written widely on action research in education.

Review:

"Action Research: Principles and Practice clearly, and passionately, addresses the questions ‘how?’ and ‘why?’ adopt an action research approach to ones practice. McNiff demonstrates throughout the book that she lives the values that she is espousing. The way she brings together her passion for creating positive change through action research with the need for rigour in the way the research is carried out reminds us that she is, at the same time, advocate, campaigner, educator and academic."

- Mark Robson, York St John University
