Developing research awareness in students: an action research project explored


  • Catriona Paisey
  • Nicholas Paisey


This paper examines a change designed to effect improvement in an honours level management accounting module using action research methodology. First, the appropriateness of action research to the research in question is discussed. Secondly, the context within which the research took place is explored. Thirdly, the action research project is examined in detail. The action research question posed was how students could be encouraged to increase their awareness and reading of quality research articles. A change was introduced into some tutorial sessions requiring students to search for and present a research article. Finally, reflections are offered on both the research reported here and on the action research process itself.
