MEDIT Seminar: Action research in action

Speaker: Pille Pruulmann-Vengerfeldt (Malmö University)
Time: April 25, 15:45
Place: M-136

The seminar aims to give a brief introduction to the main ideas of action research. Discussing the experiences of participatory action research within the Estonian National Museum context, the talk will highlight some of the practicalities when conducting action research and share some of the personal pitfalls and failures. Action research involves participating in a problem-solving situation, while simultaneously conducting research. The researcher shares their experiences and supports the organisation going through change with reflexive process about it. While action research is most commonly used in educational, medical/ social work settings, it has its uses also in the media and communication research as it is also much used in organisational studies.
