NEARI-meet in University College Dublin took place on 16 September 2017 following the kind invitation of Dr. Conor Galvin. It was a lively meeting fuelled by coffees, teas and lots of treats.
The meeting opened with Dr. Caitriona McDonagh’s keynote presentation. Here she outlined key issues pertaining to validity in the self-study action research process.
Below are the slides from her presentation as well as some video clips.
Next we had the lively and thought-provoking ‘Round-Robin’ sessions which began with a short presentation and were followed with discussion and critical questions. The inputs came from a great mixture of practitioners including: newly qualified teachers, principals, post graduates, doctoral students and post-doctoral practitioner-researchers. The amazing Round-Robin presenters were: Mark Gallagher, Shónagh Lynch, Caitriona Cleary, Toirdealbhach Ó Lionáird, Dr. Josephine Bleach, Jane O’Connell and John Cribbin (pictured below):
Here are some of the slides and video-clips of the Round-Robin presentations:
