Adding to Your Teaching Repertoire: Integrating Action Research into the Lesson Plans
Basham, Matthew J.; Yankowy, Barbara
Journal of Instructional Research, v4 p31-37 2015
As today's students become more technologically savvy, social, and collaborative using social media, there are new and innovative techniques educators can use in the classroom. For example, action research is a newer technique using collaborative group processes, drawing upon the experiences of the individuals to promote positive results. This article will provide an overview of action research theory and demonstrate how action research was used to help faculty and teachers learn how to put this theory into practice by developing lesson plans in a variety of disciplines. At the 25th International Conference on Teaching and Learning in March 2014 at Jacksonville, Florida, data was collected on ways educators may use action research in the classroom for the purposes of this research paper. While other educators may use action research differently, the results here show some ways educators can use action research in the classroom.
