                                     You are all invited the Pepperdine's 
                    Annual Action Research with technology conference.
                                         June 26 and 27, 2012 

I have attached the schedule. You are welcome to be our guest in person at Pepperdine 
if you happen to be local to the West Los Angeles Graduate School of Education and Psychology campus. 

But we want you to participate even from distances.  We will use two ways to include you.  You can 
join through Elluminate  or you use u-stream to watch and listen to us.  Please come for all, or any, 
of the talks. 

Our conference features international leaders in action research as  keynote speakers... 
(attending virtually  from England, Canada and Ireland)

Dr. Jack Whitehead,  Professor, Liverpool Hope University, UK., Co-author of You and your Action Research, and,  
All you need to know about Action research,  among other books. He will be engaging the audience in a discussion around living theory.  

Dr. Carl Bereiter & Dr. Marlene Scardamalia,   Institute for Knowledge Innovation & Technology,  OISE/University of Toronto  Authors 
of Surpassing ourselves: An inquiry into the nature and implication of expertise as well as many others. They have developed education 
practices around knowledge building and will be discussing knowledge building, expertise and action research with us. 

Dr. Alana James- Mentor for Doctoral Students at Walden University, Jones International University and CTU and Co-author 
of Action research for business, nonprofits and public administration: A tool for complex times, and many other resources.  
She will be helping us think through some of the unique challenges of doing action research outside of school settings.

And there will be 22 presentations of action research - 6 with students, 6 with teachers, and 9 with communities, non profits, 
organizations, and companies.
