Research informs your profession and your practice.

Becoming a more reflective and responsive educator is an integral part of highly accomplished teaching practice. Undertaking your own research project to evaluate programs and initiatives and inform decision-making provides a stimulating and valuable focus for a personal professional learning pathway. This presentation will introduce you to research processes and scaffold some of the key components that will help you design, implement and apply a straightforward and manageable research project in the school or library environment.

  • Understand the key components of the research process
  • Awareness of ethical considerations in human research
