Abstract

Action research is a methodology in which a professional improves or develops practice in a cyclical way, by planning the next step of action as a result of analysis of the previous action or development. It therefore involves reflective practice. It is distinct from other forms of research in that the professional looks at his or her own practice, and develops an aspect of it, rather than producing new knowledge, and is thus ideally suited to the classroom practitioner, whether at primary, secondary, FE or HE phases. This workshop will describe the mechanics of action research and consider types of evidence that might be collected to demonstrate impact. Through the workshop, participants will discuss and plan a piece of action research that they can carry out.
