Distance Learning


Getting Started in Action Research

This introduction comprises a number of online videos from Prof Bill Lucas, which can be watched at a time to suit you. There are a number of downloadable materials which accompany the videos, you will need to allow approximately 1.5 hours in total.

When you have finalised this you will be ready to complete an 'Action plan' with your proposed enquiry, which needs to be emailed to us for feedback. In addition we recommend you set up regular meetings at your school with other teachers engaging in action research, as feedback from members shows that this peer support can be invaluable.

Online coaching and check-in

Once your action research is underway, we recommend you book a 30 minute online tutorial with your tutor to discuss how it is going. If several teachers at your school are taking the distance learning option you may find it helpful to request a group tutorial. Tutorials are normally held by Skype if required please email us to arrange a support session.


Presenting your findings 

Once your action research is complete you are ready to share your findings, please send us your report for feedback prior to publication. Teachers can present their findings to their tutor and each other, sharing ideas and celebrating success.
