Action Research for the Classroom: An Introduction

Action research takes the normal reflective practice of educational practitioners and adds a dimension of systematic inquiry that helps clarify how their particular classrooms/schools operate, how well they teach and how well their students learn. The goal of this module is to facilitate a deeper understanding of action research, providing resources and information that will inform such an inquiry. Participants will learn about each step of the action research process so that they are then ready to conduct an inquiry in their own educational setting.
