About Ernie Stringer 2014

This website emerges from educational and community development experiences during my professional life. After an early career as primary teacher and school principal, I spent ten years as lecturer in teacher education at Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia. In 1985 I was appointed to the Centre for Aboriginal Studies and in the following two decades worked collaboratively with Aboriginal staff and members of the Aboriginal community to develop a wide variety of innovative and highly successful education and community development programs.

Consultation activities with government departments, community-based agencies, business corporations and local governments provided the basis for “Working With Aboriginal People”, a program designed to enable agencies to work more effectively in Aboriginal contexts. The Australian Federal Government recognized the success of these activities in 1988 when I was appointed senior consultant in the development of the Higher Education section of the National Aboriginal Education Policy.

In recent years, as visiting professor at universities in New Mexico, Texas and New York I have taught action research to graduate students in education and engaged in projects in schools with African American, Hispanic and other community and neighborhood groups. As a UNICEF consultant from 2002-2005 I facilitated a major project that assisted development of schools in East Timor.

I am author of the texts “Action Research (4th Edn Sage 2014),” “Action Research in Education (Pearson 2008),” “Action Research in Health” (with B. Genat, Pearson 2004), “Action Research in Human Services” (with R. Dwyer, Pearson 2005) and “Teaching, Learning and Action Research (with L Christensen and S. Baldwin 2010)). I was on the Editorial Board of the Action Research Journal 2003 -2013 and President of the Action Learning, Action Research Association (ALARA) 2004 – 2007.

    Hi Ernie

    A good start to the website – both in terms of introducing you and to contextualise the work more broadly within action research. Website is attractive and easy to follow. A pedant might suggest not using upper case throughout…

    • admin says:

      Yeah, I agree about the upper case. Unfortunately I’m still finding out how to use a variety of fonts, but it is apparently quite a difficult process for this particular web program. My computer engineer son is trying to make sense of the process of changing fonts. Upper case used to make the text readable, otherwise v. tiny.

      Thanks for comments.

  3. Hi Ernie – stumbled across this page by clicking on a link from AR+ where they’re promoting the latest Sage Handbook on AR. It is lovely to see these examples of your lengthy work and I think the use of photos really engages the reader and strengthens the claims.
    I agree with Sherry’s comment about upper case. In my early adult education life I worked as a learning assistant tutor, and discovered that full caps in articles can be very disinviting for poor readers, who use the ‘shape of the word’ to help them to decipher it. It’s also a bit visually overwhelming. However, I recognise the point you are making about size! Which web program are you using? My computer-competent husband may be able to assist with this issue; he’s done our webpage which I’ve referenced above.
    Warmest regards to you and Rosalie

      Thanks for your comment Pip. As indicated, the regular font is tiny and makes difficult reading, hence the capitalization. I’ve made a few attempts to learn how to change fonts in WordPress, but the process is so cumbersome I’ve had to give up. If your husband has any wisdom in this area I’d appreciate the info.

      Ireland? Rosalie and I will visit southern Ireland for about a week late September. Let me know your address and we’ll pop in to say hello.

  4. Ernie, we’re about to change apartment so best you email me on my dcu address (above) and I’ll arrange to meet up. We’ll still be in Drumcondra, which is just to the north of the main part of the city (you can walk into town in around half an hour). Let us know if you need a bed! Would be good to at least catch up for a drink in one of Dublin’s many pubs.
