Experiencing oneself as a living contradiction Many action researchers begin their enquiries on the grounds that they want to improve certain aspects of their work or work situation, in order to live more fully in the direction of their social and educational values.

We explain that these innovations involve developing new perspectives about the nature of our work and an acceptance of responsibility for our influence. ’ We also explain how we are reconceptualizing ourselves as a community of enquiry, and the considerable implications this may have for redefining what counts as institutional forms of teaching and learning practice. We believe that the educational significance of our work lies in our capacity to clarify the processes we engage in as we explicate the meanings of our lives in educational relation with others.

The process is generative and transformational, because the end of one thing becomes the beginning of something else. All organic systems have their own internal generative capacity to transform themselves into ever more fully developed versions of themselves (McNiff et al. 1992; McNiff and Whitehead 2000). It is not a case of working towards a notional perfect end state, because a living system always has the potential to transform into even more fully realized states. Action research is this kind of generative transformational process, where claims to improved learning and practice generate further learning to improve practice.
