Participatory Action Research

Exploring Distributed Leadership in a Workplace Network

This case describes a commissioned research project that was undertaken to explore the role of interorganizational networks in supporting large-scale change and improvement and achieving the collaborative goals of patient safety and quality of care. The hypothesis was that there is a strong correlation between effective distributed leadership in an interorganizational network and the ability to achieve these mutual goals. This case gives an account of the research process which involved multi-stakeholder groups in a large geographical area and highlights some of the challenges in conducting research in that context, and using social network analysis software. In addition to the findings specific to the study's topic, this research also provided some insights into conducting qualitative research in a distributed network and into using social network analysis software. I share some recommendations for researchers undertaking similar projects with the intent of contributing what was learned and documenting the strategies used to overcome the challenges.

Doing Youth Participatory Action Research

Transforming Inquiry with Researchers, Educators, and Students

Doing Youth Participatory Action Research offers an unprecedented, in-depth exploration of the pragmatics and possibilities of youth-driven research. Drawing upon multiple years of experience engaging youth in rigorous, critical inquiry about the conditions impacting their lives, the authors examine how YPAR encourages the educational community to re-imagine the capabilities of young people and the purposes of teaching, learning, and research itself. Much more than a "how-to" guide for those interested in creating their own YPAR projects, this book draws upon the voices of students and educators, as well as the multiple historical traditions of critical research, to describe how youth inquiry transforms each step of the traditional research process. From identifying research questions to collecting data and disseminating findings, each chapter details how YPAR revolutionizes traditional conceptions of who produces knowledge, how it is produced, and for what purposes. The book weaves together research, policy, and practice to offer YPAR as a practice with the power to challenge entrenched social and educational inequalities, empower critically aware youth, and revolutionize pedagogy in classrooms and communities. For researchers, educators, community members, and youth who want to connect, question, and transform the world collectively, Doing Youth Participatory Action Research is a rich source of both pragmatic methodological guidance and inspiration.
