This lab session will examine the how of these stances.
November 16th 5:30-6:45pm - Reporting on Action Research: Models for Papers and Presentations To contribute new knowledge to a field of professional study or to a community of practice, researchers working within any research paradigm must share their work and seek critical feedback.
