    EDU671: My Mock Action Research Proposal Presentation

    in Education

    Action research is inquiry or research in the context of focused efforts to improve the quality of an organization and its performance. It typically is designed and conducted by practitioners who analyze the data to improve their own practice.  Action research can be done by individuals or by teams of colleagues.


    An action research proposal is the first part of the action research paper.  The main difference is that you put the methodology section into the future tense and include a detailed research timeline.


    I just want to give special thanks to Instructor Anthony Valley.  Instructor Valley, having you as an instructor has been a real blessing.  Thank you!

    power of perceptio paranormal Ottawa Paranormal Research and Investigations (

    in Spirituality

    I have been investigating and researching the paranormal since 1995.  My first experiences occurred in my family’s funeral home when I was 8 years old.  I saw the apparition that I later found to be my great grandfather who died 3 months after I was born.  Over the years I have had countless encounters with paranormal activity and worked with many different groups and as a freelance investigator.


    In the summer or 2014 I decided to form Ottawa Paranormal Research and Investigations (OPRI) because I was sick of being on teams that were trying to imitate those they see on TV.  I use my knowledge and experience to help those afflicted by extreme paranormal activity.  I am considered by some a demonologist though I prefer to think of myself as a paranormal investigator first and foremost.


     


    Currently, In addition to Lead Investigator for OPRI, I am Director of Demonic Investigation for the Haunted North America Network as well as Director of Assessment and Investigation for the Holy Order of Saint Micheal The Arch Angel.  I have spent years developing a network of likeminded teams throughout North America and beyond to help anyone, anywhere that contacts me in need of assistance regardless of their situation or beliefs.
