Action Research Unit

  • Helps you to live out your values and to be clear about what you do and why when setting strategic goals
  • Empowers managers to bring about improvement in own practice and subsequently whole school
  • Encourages collaboration and participatory management
  • If action research becomes a norm with management and subsequently all teachers and learners in the school, then the school can transform itself into a centre of excellence
  • Everyone will be accountable for delivering the best work they can
  • Teacher portfolios of action research will be a good indication of growth and development and can even be used as part of a performance appraisal
  • Action research increases enthusiasm among teachers – when you are involved in your work and in control, it becomes much more exciting and enjoyable
  • Action research promotes openness and transparency as people come to see that “mistakes” are valuable learning tools
