1 LSIS STEM Programme Science, Engineering and Mathematics support for Subject Learning Coaches Teaching and learning Action Research – Taking Action – Measuring Impact in the T&L Sector Marion Coleman Michael Callaghan

2 We started from a premise that Research focusing on T&L is of particular valve to practitioners Practitioners often suspect what might make a difference to T & L but dont have the evidence base to support it Providing support mechanisms would encourage and develop a research culture in the sector

3 A small focussed piece of work linked to improving the quality of T&L It requires examining a set of circumstances with a view to improving practice It involves a cycle of; action – reflection – further action Our Shared View of Action Research

4 ACTION RESEARCH Action research – John Maynard & Vikki Smith Improving practice Identify the Issue Explore Solutions Test the solution: what works & doesnt work? Apply learning to improve practice Share learning with colleagues

5 To support: Improvements to teaching & learning through practitioner enquiry and reflection Develop practice and have a positive impact on colleagues and learners within their organisation Produce a variety of practical materials e.g. case studies, models, checklists, CPD materials, etc., for wider use and dissemination across the sector Develop further capacity to undertake action research What we set out to do

6 Process used Generate interest from the sector Transparent moderation process Built in support mechanisms action planning baseline data, impact measures Interim support peer contact & support Offered small financial awards Dissemination strategy

7 Whats been achieved so far 3 year of ARPs building on previous years successes – retention and achievement high 2007/8 35 project - engineering, maths 2008/9 75 projects -science, engineering, maths many collaborative and across STEM 2009/10 45 projects - science, engineering, math increasing number of collaborative and STEM projects

8 Whats been achieved so far Building a community of action research work within STEM Significant evidence based research collected demonstrating improvements to T&L Increased collaborative work with colleagues and across STEM subjects Case studies and resources available on web site Dissemination strategy in place to make the finding readily accessible and showcase the work of the project holders
