Collaborative Inquiry in Practice
Action, Reflection, and Making Meaning


© 2000 | 180 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Collaborative Inquiry in Practice is an invitation and guide for people interested in pursuing a more imaginative and holistic approach to human inquiry. The reader is guided step-by-step through the theory and practice of collaborative inquiry:

  • the key ideas from pragmatism and phenomenological traditions;
  • the relationship of collaborative inquiry with other action-oriented methods of inquiry;
  • the conduct of collaborative inquiry, from forming a group to constructing knowledge

The authors demonstrate how effective collaborative inquiry demystifies research and makes learning more accessible. The guidance provided is equally relevant to professional and academic settings.

"The narrative is peppered with practical ideas. The authors not only tell about Collaborative Inquiry, they show how it works through their prose and examples. It is this coherence and epistemological consistency that gives the book its strength. Of particular benefit are the examples from the various fields."

Accessible text - good model of the collaborative inquiry process.
