Collaborative Action Research Network (CARN)

Collaborative Action Research Network (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.” The network has a focus on increasing the visibility of action research, supporting action researchers broadly and in fostering connections between action research practitioners, notably through regional networks. The members of CARN come from a wide range of backgrounds, such as “educational, health, social care, commercial, and public services settings”. There is a yearly CARN conference and a yearly bulletin is published.

“CARN was founded in 1976 in order to continue the development work of the Ford Teaching Project in UK primary and secondary schools”.

Journal: Educational Action Research

Conference: hosts an annual conference in Europe, usually towards the end of the year.
