The Winter NEARIMeet and the VPAR SIG virtual meeting was a resounding success with participants attending from all over the globe. A broad spectrum of ages attended too, from people who have retired to those who are just 5 weeks old!
The meeting was deftly chaired by Cornelia Connolly and began with the sharing of the NEARI ethical statement. the guest speaker was Mary Brydon-Miller who set the meeting alight with her paper entitled: “The Road to Hell” : The Problem of Good Intentions in Action Research.
