Action Research Summer Institute
Action research is inquiry or research conducted to improve the quality of education. It is typically designed and carried out by teachers who attempt to improve their own practice. Action research can generate genuine and sustained improvements in educational settings. It gives educators new opportunities to reflect on and assess their teaching; to explore and test new ideas, methods, and materials; to assess the effectiveness of the new approaches, and to share feedback with fellow practitioners through contributions to the scholarship of teaching. The focus of action research is to expand the teacher's role as inquirer about teaching and learning through systematic classroom research. The CTE’s Action Research Institute will lead to participants designing an investigation of student learning in their own classrooms. This may include the conditions under which learning occurs, what learning looks like, and how to deepen it. The purpose is to both improve student performance in a particular classroom and to disseminate findings to the larger professional field.
