Presenter: Dr. Elizabeth Cassidy Parker

Dr. Elizabeth Cassidy Parker provides contexts for music educators interested in engaging in action research. With her own article as an example, she discusses ethical considerations for action research and advocates for an approach that bridges the gap between research and practice. Learning objectives: 1. Introduce the Stringer (1999) interactive spiral of look, think, act as a way to consider the underpinnings of action research. 2. Identity ethical concerns with conducting action research. 3. Review findings from Parker’s (2010) action research study and apply findings to the choral classroom. Recorded in October 2023, this session was organized by the Society for Research in Music Education (SRME) as part of a series to support all NAfME members in learning more about opportunities to connect research and practice.
