|Action research to understand and enable the development of radical collegiality within a school|
|Written by Tim Kent, Michael Fielding, Peter Templeton|
This action research project will develop a tutor’s practice in facilitating teachers’ learning through the teacher-as-researcher module, an award-bearing CPD module designed for work-based learning in schools. Based in a secondary school in Essex, the project will develop materials, learning processes and activities through collegiate work with a group of teachers and others undertaking the module. The action research will also enable a greater understanding to develop about the inter-relationships between workbased CPD, the professional practice of teachers engaged in educational change and the development of radical collegiality as a form of professional working among staff within a school and in partnership with staff in another school (International School in Spain). The project will also enable an understanding of the use of e-learning technologies for the purpose of collegiate working within and across schools.
