Abstract [en]

Action research is an internationally established method of inquiry, primarily within education.  It is not a research method that is widely practiced within Sweden, although given its specific focus, that of a disciplined inquiry undertaken by an instructor with the intent that this research will inform and possibly change her/his teaching practices in the future, this poster will explore the possibilities of using this method within LSP.

This poster will outline the three basic types of action research ( individual, collaborative, and institutional) and will briefly note the benefits and drawbacks of each type from a Swedish university organizational perspective.  This poster will also present several direct examples/ eventual case studies of action research areas/ types of inquiries within two disciplines, English studies and Swedish studies, at Högskolan i Gävle.

New research methods are adapted in direct relation to their possibility of being funded, and this poster will also address this.  Several of the major funding agencies in Sweden, including VR, RJ, SI, and STINT, will be examined here in terms of the possibilities of acquiring support for action research within the context of their respective guidelines.  The poster will present various potential inroads and research cluster constellations as possible options.
