About CARN

CARN was founded in 1976 in order to continue the development work of the Ford Teaching Project in UK primary and secondary schools. Since that time it has grown to become an international network drawing its members from educational, health, social care, commercial, and public services settings.

CARN aims to encourage and support action research projects (personal, local, national and international), accessible accounts of action research projects, and contributions to the theory and methodology of action research.

About the event

The event is focused on how to build capacity and support services, schools and communities to engage in real world action research in collaboration with action research communities.

Starting at 9am, attendees will hear from independent researcher and representatives from CARN, Liverpool Hope University, NEARI and more on how to plan, carry out, and review action research in the real world.
