Action Research: A Faculty Option with Difference

Manuel D. Punzal



Kurt Lewin (1948), a social scientist, from another perspective
argued that social research should not focus on controlled
experiments that are removed from real-life situation. Rather,
social-research should be based on the action which a group of
individuals adopt to improve life situations.
On the other end, Stephen Corey, promptly applied Lewin’s
concept of action research on education. He argued that
traditional research, conducted mainly by researchers outside the
confines of schools, do not have impact on school processes,
practice and culture.
