Your project proposal will contain a Practical Framework section of 8–12 pages (not including the title page, table of contents, or reference list). Develop these sections according to the following guidelines:
- Practical Framework: Explain how you will conduct action research. Include the following:
- Identification of Grand Objective
- Identification of First Sub-Objective/Diagnosis
- Planning Phase
- How will you approach the problem within the confines of your organization?
- Action Phase
- Emphasis must be on how you will facilitate this phase as you employ appreciative inquiry/action research (AI/AR) values. (If you are not sure, hypothesize what you believe would be the best approach.)
- Facilitation of the Reflection Phase
- Identify the new knowledge created during the cycle (covering “What? So what? and Now what?”), and employ the values of AI/AR.
