TRANSFORMATIVE
ACTION RESEARCH

Saturday, May 1, 2021

10am-12pm

John Bilorusky, PhD, WISR’s President, Core Faculty and a co-founder of WISR on May 1, 1975, will speak about two new books just released (April 21st) by Routledge Press, based on a half century of collaborative action-research at WISR.

This will be a question-and-answer session and discussion about two books just released on April 21st by Routledge Press. The two books grew out of WISR’s almost half century history of being engaged in collaborative uses of action-research to bring about transformation, changes large and small. The books cover the basic principles and methods of this approach, as well as providing detailed cases and stories of the many and varied ways that people in the WISR learning community have creatively used these methods.  To read reviews of the two books, and to learn more, go to:
