Narrative Inquiry

 

When I started my PhD I remember sitting down and writing: “I am not searching for a ‘new’ voice. I am simply searching for ways in which I can express out loud the genuine one I already have.” http://www.actionresearch.net/living/rhodes.shtml

 

I think it’s stood me in good stead. The world is an enormous place and has space for every kind of writer we can imagine.

 

Throughout my work as a coach and mentor I’ve supported the work of others and still continue to do so as a peer reviewer of the Educational Journal of Living Theories (EJOLTS). My own article, Exploring an extended role for coaching - through the eyes of an action researcher was published in December 2010.

 

“Her work in action research and knowledge generation in particular living action research accounts of her practice are at the cutting edge of knowledge creation. She is challenging and persistent in a highly professional and non aggressive way and brings deep insights to her work”. (Jekan Adler-Collins, Asst. Professor, Fukuoka Prefectural University)
