Values Based Practitioner Action Research (VPAR) ESAI Special Interest Group





We are delighted to announce our participation in the new ESAI Special Interest Group.

The SIG is called Values Based Practitioner Action Research (VPAR) (see )and it will be an extension of NEARI. The SIG is forum for action researchers and those who teach action research. The SIG recognises, supports or promotes research that is grounded in the researcher’s values. In VPAR we encourage those interested in practitioner research to engage in dialogue and help each other to demonstrate the rigour, validity and authenticity of their research.

The first SIG meeting took place online on 24 April 2020 at 10.00 am, alongside the Spring NEARIMeet.

This SIG will have face to face meetings in April, September/October and January where we will share research stories and resources and continue conversations in an online discussion forum. Meetings will be alternately in Dublin, outside the capital and online. They will include an input from at least one international guest speaker. Delegates from the SIG will attend research conferences and report back to the SIG members and ESAI.

If you would like to become a member of the SIG, please complete the membership form here.

The second VPAR SIG meeting took place Saturday 19 September.

The guest speaker was Mary McAteer. More details here.

The next VPAR SIG meeting will take place online on 23 January 2021 at 3.00 pm with guest speaker Mary Brydon-Miller
