Action Research: next steps. A forum for discussing people’s action research practices and live inquiries.

You are invited to join in a session in the continuing ASP: Earth Conversations series, in which people can discuss and share their practices of action research, and have an opportunity to explore their approach to a live inquiry with other participants.

The session will partly be a follow-on to earth conversation #2: Action Research as an embodied life practice – from early 2022. The recording and transcript of the 2022 session will be available (password protected) to people who sign up for 25th January 2023.

You might like to send in some questions and curiosities about action research and inquiry in advance, to inform the conversation.  These will be collated and posted the day before the session.

Chat will be used as an ongoing conversation during the meeting.
