The purpose of this chapter is to describe the process for preparing doctoral students as action researchers in an educational technology program at the University of South Carolina. First, an overview of action research and its key characteristics are discussed. Then, we describe doctoral students’ experiences with action research and educational theory, and we report some descriptive, evaluative findings, gauging the success of these experiences. In addition, this chapter includes examples of dissertation topics to demonstrate the use of action research in the educational technology field. Finally, we offer some conclusions and reflections with the modifications we have made to serve our students better.
