What is Action Research?

23 04 2009

Action research is a process in which participants examine their own educational practice systematically and carefully, using the techniques of research. It is based on the following assumptions:

  • Teachers and principals work best on problems they have identified for themselves
  • Teachers and principals become more effective when encouraged to examine and assess their own work and then consider ways of working differently
  • Teachers and principals help each other by working collaboratively
  • Working with colleagues helps teachers and principals in their professional development

(Watts, 1985)
