Action Research Support Session

Action Research Center (ARC) director, Dr. Miriam Raider-Roth and steering team member, Heather Gerker, facilitated a virtual session on Tuesday, February 27th, 2024 to engage in a collaborative discussion regarding support of all things action research. Community members and researchers shared their budding action research projects and received support from other attendees and members of the ARC.

“What Do I Do Now?”: Active Practice in Responding to Racist Comments in Our Lives

A Four-Part Workshop Series with Itzel Hayward and Kathy Simon. In their first four-part workshop series, Itzel and Kathy shared skills for challenging racist words and ideas in a way that’s most likely to encourage individuals to change—or at least to have openness to looking at their beliefs and behavior. We explored having the impulse to avoid these conversations and what it might look like if we chose to engage in them, instead. We practiced ways of listening deeply, without implying agreement. We explored avenues for sharing our own beliefs, based on core values and possible common ground, rather than on attacking the other’s position. We looked at the “mindful inner world” that is necessary to ground this practice and find our balance when we hear painful, triggering statements.

Lessons Learned: A Before and After Look at the Disillusion of a Pride Center

Dr. Rachel D. Nolan shared the findings of an action-research project. We explored the scope of mental health, significant risks, and protective factors among a specified group within the gender sexual minority (GSM) community identified as Caucasian gay males, between the ages of 18-69. These men were residents of a local community who were directly impacted by the dissolution of their community Pride Center.

Teaching for Equity: Enacting Agency through Collaborative Faculty Leadership

Annie Bauer, Connie Kendall Theado, Stephen Kroeger, Miriam Raider-Roth, Mark Sulzer, and Susan Watts-Taffe shared their Critical Friends process for examining their teaching through a culturally relevant pedagogy (CRP) lens. In this session, we engaged in the Critical Friends process and debriefed together.
