Practitioner action research is a powerful professional learning tool, but initial teacher training does not provide training on how to plan for and implement, an effective research project.
This course provides an overview of the process of inquiry in social science contexts helping you to identify research questions, plan for data collection, complete analyses and report findings.
Action Research in the Classroom
Turning your own classroom into a research lab is one of the most powerful strategies for professional development and personal reflection. Without realising it, teachers often set professional development goals that require action research in their classroom to gain evidence of impact. The trouble is, initial teacher training rarely covers the skills required for effective action research.
This is course provides you with the knowledge and skills to undertake high quality action research. After completing the course you will be confident to carry out impact assessments of your own practice, be confident to share your findings with others, and you will be able to coach others in the use of a structured approach to action research.
This course is for anyone involved in the action research process in schools at the primary or secondary level.
Ongoing online support is offered via our Moodle LMS with additional resources, an open forum to discuss ideas, and access to expert help in data analysis. Download more information below.
