Hi Dan and Joan

This is a very good question that you ask, Dan. When I ran an action 
research course in my role as staff developer at a local polytechnic 
some years back, my participants had the same type of question. "Does 
the work that we'd normally engage in as reflective practitioners now 
have to get ethics approval, because we're doing it formally in a course 
that's called 'action research'?" The institution, to resolve the need 
to avoid having the ethics committee getting bogged down in lots of 
small, practitioner-based research projects, decided the issue by 
requiring staff to submit their proposal to their Head of Department, 
who in turn decided whether it was sufficiently different to 'normal 
practice' to require ethics approval.

I'll be interested to hear what Joan says. Meanwhile, Joan, I have 
forwarded your essay to a nursing lecturer who's just completed the 
first reflective task of a course called Postgraduate Certificate in 
Tertiary Teaching, as I know she will find it really valuable to know 
that the kinds of questions she investigated in her task are being 
replicated elsewhere in the world. Are you okay about her citing this 
work in her next task, if she finds it relevant? Thanks so much for the 
sharing.

Warm regards

Pip Bruce Ferguson (teaching developer, New Zealand)
