Working Paper 89: Conversation Analysis, Practitioner Based Research, Reflexivity and Reflective Practice: Some Exploratory Remarks.

William Housley and Richard Fitzgerald

During the course of this paper we intend to explore some possibilities that relate to ethnomethodology, conversation analysis, reflexive practice and practitioner based research. We intend to explore the way in which conversation analysis may facilitate some objectives and goals of reflexive practice and practitioner based research within professional practice. In order to fulfil this objective, this paper will discuss and describe the methodological approach of conversation analysis, explore the principles of reflexive practice and practitioner based research and consider the extent to which conversation analysis may be used as a means of fulfilling the aims of these inter-related projects within professional settings.
