Action Research in eTwinning Projects

Have you ever wondered how you can turn an eTwinning project into a classroom-based investigation that could help inform your future teaching practice? In this webinar series, we are going to learn how to examine our own educational practice systematically and carefully using the techniques of research. Action research helps us to turn “classroom challenges” into “researchable questions” and thereby come up with more effective and sustainable solutions. It is therefore a powerful method of professional development. Moreover, it is an ongoing commitment to learning and developing as a practitioner, allowing us to effectively share our findings with our peers and contributing to the understanding and development of the teaching profession.

Target audience

Teachers interested to collaborate and work together with teachers all over Europe by developing eTwinning projects and have an interest in developing their practice and pedagogy through action research, regardless of the subject they teach.
