As you move forward leading others in global education, you will have many stories to share that help others see what you have accomplished. But if you want to be a bit more intentional about creating change, a bit more systematic about examining the changes you create, and have more convincing stories to tell, then you may want to be an action researcher. This session will help you think about how to approach your global educational efforts with orientation towards improving your skills, and developing a deeper understanding of pathways of change. Working as an action researcher will give you a greater appreciation of the multiple perspectives that make up what we see as reality.
