Action research is a learning process whose fruits are the real and material changes in: • • • • what people do how they interact with the world and with others what they mean and what they value the discourses in which they understand and interpret their world. Through action research people can come to understand their social and educational practices more richly by locating their practices, as concretely and precisely as possible, in the particular material, social and historical circumstances within which their practices were produced, developed and evolved—so that their real practices become accessible to reflection, discussion and reconstruction as products of past circumstances which are capable of being modified in and for present and future circumstances.

Readings on issues related to the principles and conduct of PAR, problematics of the concept of empowerment and on narratives were planned for this year.
