We are delighted to announce our newly established Special Interest Group – NEARI SIG – which is affiliated to the Educational Studies Association of Ireland (ESAI).

The SIG will focus on:

  • strengthening the rigour of action research for accreditation and enhancing institutional standards

  • ethical issues, in particular on how current ethical standards in educational institutions may impede or curtail the undertaking of practitioner action research

  • continuing the work of NEARI as a foundation for action research discourse

We believe these issues are of key importance in academic programmes that feature action research, practitioner research and reflective practice. We would like to build connections with colleagues in these institutions so that together, we might support those who are leading action research modules in their institutions while strengthening the research-base for action research both nationally and internationally.

The inaugural meeting of the NEARI SIG takes place on January 26th, 2023. If you would like to book a seat, please contact us at or through Eventbrite.
