Interactive Research: Applications in connection with evaluation and efforts to develop the work environment
2007 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This article describes and discusses an interactive research approach used as a method in an assignment to evaluate a major national programme with the aim to promote health and reduce the level of sick-absenteeism. The primary objectives when adopting an interactive research approach are to pursue theoretical development and acquire generally-applicable knowledge. We demonstrate how research can be conducted in close co-operation with those concerned within the framework of a critical and reflective community. We sought to see whether evaluation and learning were used to make the results of the projects more sustainable and if development work had become more strategic, long-term and systematic.
