Sharing Research Stories Creates a Ripple Effect
This week’s Learning Resources explore action research as a vehicle for educational change. With the ripple effect in mind, consider how you can share you own research story with others. In addition, think about what structures would provide the best opportunity to share your action research so it influences others at different levels. Dana & Yendol-Hoppey (2009) state, “By getting into the pond and sharing your inquiry, you contribute to changing the ways some people outside of teaching view teachers and their practice and try to change education from the outside in. In the sharing of your inquiry, you contribute to reforming the profession of teaching—from the inside out!” (p. 189).
How would you share your story from the inside out? What risks are you willing to take to share your story in and out of your school environment? What impact do you think your research story will have on others?
Post a brief summary (250 words or less) of your action research plan to begin sharing your research story with your Walden colleagues. Also, share thoughts about disseminating your research findings using information from this week’s Learning Resources. Respond to the following:
•Write a brief summary (250 words or less) of your plan for sharing your research story.
•Describe briefly what risks you are willing to take to share your story in and out of your school environment.
•Explain the impact you think your research story will have on others.
