As an inherent component of the Doctorate in Education, Leadership, Administration and Policies. (ELAP), we were introduced to Participatory Action Research by Dr. McCabe.
After six consecutive semesters, this is the resulting project.
PAR develops as a “dynamic methodology for personal and professionals development” (James et al, 2007. p.7) with the aim to create communities of practice.
In this study, three consecutive cycles are described. Each cycle of the research builds upon the previous one, using a mixed methodology of quantitative and qualitative techniques.
The Center for Collaborative Action Research (CCAR) connects educators, researchers, and community members.
The Center's ultimate goal is "to create deep understanding of educational problems in a range of different contexts including but not limited to schools, and to encourage evidence-based reasoning to solve these problems"
