ACTION RESEARCH

RESEARCH METHOD

Action research is a method of addressing and responding to problems within our society and environment through practice in order to improve the human condition. It applies tacit (intuition) and explicit knowledge (your ability to explain things) to guide you through theory into praxis. 

The first part of my exploration will first be to address a need, and then frame this topic into a question (question will be subject to change as I work through my research) to explore further through academic journals regarding the situation and exemplar pieces and designers working in the field.

The second part of this method is setting up to solve this problem through my design practice, to hopefully answer this question with a resolved design. 

This process is about reflecting, evaluating and improving.
