Would you like to undertake a 14-session course in action research? It's Areol, action research and evaluation on line. Sponsored by ALARA, it is conducted by email. After an introduction to action research, it offers several sessions on ways of increasing participation. This is followed by sessions on research quality. An action-research style of evaluation is then discussed. The course is offered twice a year and revised each time it is conducted. The next course runs from mid-February until late May 2017. Some orientation material will be sent to participants in very early February 2017. You can examine an earlier and less complete version of the course on the web at http://www.aral.com.au/areol/ To subscribe email Bob Dick firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for a subscription form.
