Chapter 8: Case Studies: How do we show the implications of our research?

Case Studies: How do we show the implications of our research?

This chapter contains the case studies of two educational leaders who have done much to promote action research in their own countries. They are Tian Fengjun in China and Branko Bognar in Croatia. The stories show what can happen when people of vision exercise their educational influence in the learning of others in organizational contexts. Their original vision can lead to personal, organizational and cultural transformation. In these stories, the authors show how they are contributing to the education of their own social formations, with wider implications. By presenting these case stories, we believe we are, through the authors, showing some of the implications of our own work.
