In a living educational theory approach
to action research, individuals hold their lives to account by producing explanations
of their educational influences in their own learning in enquiries of the kind, 'How am I improving
what I am doing?' They do this in contexts where they are seeking to live
the values they use to give life meaning and purpose as fully as they can. The living educational theories of professional educators and other practitioner-researchers usually explain their educational influences in the learning of their students
and can also explain their educational influences in the learning of social formations. See www.actionresearch.net/writings/livtheory.html.
