ACTION RESEARCH IN TRANSITIONAL SITUATIONS: LESSONS FOR DEVELOPING RESEARCH-LED PEDAGOGICAL PRACTICE

W.S. Haji Suhaili

Universiti Teknologi Brunei (BRUNEI DARUSSALAM)
When embarking on research to improve a current situation within a university, the researcher’s stance plays a very important role in ensuring the success of the approach. The researcher’s role is not placed in neat categories (Merton, 1972) and positionality shifts back and forth across boundaries (Griffith, 1998). This paper describes a 3-year case study which used an action research methodology to introduce an improvement to assessment for final year projects in the transition phase from foundation to a bachelor degree’s project in Computer Science at Universiti Teknologi Brunei Resistance and cooperation both need to be considered in the development and dissemination of new research-led processes. This paper will discuss the importance of having prior knowledge of the organisation and how this can be used to navigate the research process, as well as implications for educators and researchers who want to be involved in action research for the development of pedagogical practice.
