This will be the first of a series of quarterly seminars on Action Research to be held on Saturday, January 15, 10:00am-12:30pm, led by John Bilorusky, PhD and Marilyn Jackson, PhD, Faculty, Facilitators.
We will discuss the significant role collaboration plays in inquiry in community-based participatory action-research, cutting-edge research in the natural sciences, popular education, including the folk school movement and WISR student academic projects. This seminar will be supplemented by articles and learning exercises available online. All WISR students are expected to participate actively in learning about and in using collaboration in action-research. Participation in this seminar and follow up learning activities is the best and easiest way to accomplish this. You are invited to bring fingerfood snacks to share. ***MFT Students: Since there will be only one regular MFT seminar in January, attendance at the action-research seminar not only addresses part of the WISR action-research requirement, but also counts as attendance at an MFT seminar this month.
Followup to Action Research Seminar: For those who can’t make it on the 15th, there will be a followup phone conference led by WISR Faculty, Cynthia Lawrence and Marilyn Jackson. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 510/655-2830 with the Tuesday or Wednesday evenings you would be available to participate, in January or early February.
