Critical Friends Forum – Action Research Intervention Planning and Ethical Considerations Draft . [WLO: 5][CLO: 3, 4, 5]
This week we will continue our Critical Friends discussion forums to continue to build towards your Final Action Research Proposal. This discussion forum will provide an outlet for sharing the draft the section of your proposal that you created in Week Four, the Intervention Planning and Ethical Considerations – Action Research Proposal. At this point, you may not have your instructor’s feedback yet in order to make revisions before sharing with peers, which is fine. The purpose of this Critical Friend Forums is to share your current work to get targeted, meaningful feedback from your peers. If you have any particular area(s) that you are struggling with or need more feedback, please request for your Critical Friends to focus their feedback, perspectives, insights, and questions in that specified area. The sections of the Intervention Planning and Ethical Considerations – Action Research Proposal (the Week Four assignment) you should include are as follows:
Ethical Considerations – Informed Consent and IRB Approval
Ethical Considerations – Freedom from Harm
Ethical Considerations – Anonymity and Confidentiality
One of the qualities of great leaders and professionals is to be open to and objective about feedback – this is something you will likely need to do in your own professional role, so getting used to seeking and considering feedback objectively is a critical skill for all professionals in any field. Remember that when giving and receiving feedback, it is important to be objective and not take feedback personally. All feedback should be geared toward helping each other construct a quality action research proposal, support success, and encourage critical thinking about action research. Once you have thought critically about feedback you have received, if you disagree with it, that is fine. You can continue to respectfully engage in discussion and build understanding by asking questions and sharing insights and perspectives.
