Learning from differences

Richard Ennals

International Journal of Action Research, 2014, vol. 10, issue 2, 257-275

Abstract: The article sets out an experience-based account of “Learning from Differences”, underpinning engaged research as an alternative to conventional detached social science. There is a central focus on Action, and Action Research, with particular reference to policy development at regional level, and concerning older workers. The challenge is to enable others to learn. In so doing, we can mainstream Action Research as integral to management.
