Summary "The Action Research Dissertation: A Guide for Students and Faculty provides an accessible roadmap that honors the complexity of action research. It will show that action research is not only appropriate for a dissertation, but also a deeply rewarding experience for both the researcher and participants. This book helps students understand the ways action research dissertations are different from more traditional dissertations and prepares students and their committees for the unique dilemmas they may face, such as validity, positionality, design, write-up, ethics, and defense of the dissertation." "The Action Research Dissertation is a must-have resource for any student contemplating an action research project, thesis, or dissertation and equally valuable to researchers undertaking and writing up their action research."--BOOK JACKET
