Action Research Projects
Action research is critical, intuitive and empirical. It is participatory. It is real. Action Research is an exciting process where graduate students integrate theory and practice in a way that benefits the enterprise of education and the individual conducting the research. The action research project is one of the capstone experiences of the Masters in Education program at Concordia. It is also an integral piece of the Research Strand of the Continuing Teaching License. It gives teachers, as researchers, the opportunity to examine those issues that may complicate or compromise the learning process in their school setting, and devise a plan, based on research, to overcome the issues or problems and improve learning. By publishing these projects, the College of Education provides an acknowledgement of quality action research projects, showcases exemplars of student work and current, local and practical research results that may be used in the classroom.
