Teachers engage in Action Research as a process in which they examine their own educational practice systematically and carefully using the techniques of research. It is based on the following assumptions:
  • teachers work best on problems they have identified for themselves;
  • teachers become more effective when encouraged to examine and assess their own work and then consider ways of working differently;
  • teachers help each other by working collaboratively;
  • working with colleagues helps teachers in their professional development.
