Action Research Reports 2015-2016


May 1, 2016
Event Description: 

There were 11 participants in this year's Action Research Bursary group with 3 individual projects and 2 joint projects undertaken. 
Up to $1200 was awarded to successful applicants to support action research between ISABC schools. Teachers may either work individually or in teams across ISABC schools. Bursaries are available – up to $500 for individuals and up to $1200 for teams.
The rationale is:
• To encourage reflection on educational practice and theory
• To encourage cross-pollination of ideas and collaboration within/between ISABC schools
