Implications, Evaluation and Dissemination

This part deals with some of the implications of the research, how research can be evaluated, and how its influence can be extended through the production and dissemination of practitioners’ stories. It contains the following chapters:

  • Case studies
    • How do we show the implications of our research?
  • Evaluating the account of our research
    • How do we evaluate the evidence-based account of our learning?

We explain how the dissemination of the stories of practitioner action researchers can contribute to new learning and practices that have the potential to inform the education and practices of social formations.
