Respond to this message.

I am on a discussion list addressing action research, a form of
participatory research that is well suited to educators. However, many
professionals are using this form of research. I was delighted te receive
this message recently. It may be of interest to some of you.

>Dear Colleague
>For those interested in action research and environmental issues, the new
>ANZSEELIST might be of interest. Action research type interventions are
>being tried by some ecological economists as they seek to come to terms
>with the meaning of "transdisciplinary" and how to apply it to research
>about the environment. The notion of group learning (after Senge and
>others) is also a part of some ecological econonomics dialogue.
>The Australia New Zealand Society for Ecological Economics is pleased to
>announce a new Ecological Economics electronic mail discussion list for its
>membership and all other interested people. The list is intended as a
>forum through which researchers, government decision makers, community and
> environment management industry groups can interact and contribute to a
>higher overall level of learning in relation to environmental management
>and policy.
>The new list is intended as a forum for progressing transdisciplinary
>cooperation and methods.
>Who should participate in this discussion group:
