e-Learning and action research as transformative practice

Farren, Margaret (2008) e-Learning and action research as transformative practice. Journal of Online Education, 5 (1).


As a reflective practitioner of higher education, Margaret Farren seeks to contribute to a knowledge base of professional practice by using a living educational theory form of action research in her approach to teaching and learning. She focuses her research on the Masters program in e-learning at Dublin City University where professional educators from a variety of private and public institutions seek to transform their pedagogy and their students' learning experiences through the application of the latest interactive technology. In this article, Farren demonstrates how an action-research approach to pedagogy that includes a commitment to both a web of betweenness and living educational theory can provide opportunities for educators to inquire into their educational influences, establish living standards of judgement, and take responsibility for their own learning.
