Professionals as Researchers
Professionals as Researchers at the Woodland Academy Trust
We are delighted that some of our colleagues across our family of schools are engaging in action research this academic year alongside the University of Greenwich and Open University.
Four colleagues will be completing Action Research, complete with MA credits. Their projects will include a focus on the following four areas:
• Character Education
• Assessment and Feedback
In addition, a further four colleagues will be undertaking enquiry projects in the same areas.
To further embed, our Reading for Pleasure culture across the schools, sixteen colleagues will come together to meet as a Reading for Pleasure pedagogy group.
At the end of the year, our colleagues will present their research findings to our family of schools.
As a commitment to our teachers, the Trust has arranged for each teacher within our family of schools to benefit from membership to the Chartered College. We are committed to investing in professional development and know that the opportunities available to them through being a member will be invaluable.
The Chartered College of Teaching is a professional body for teachers and leaders who want to work in a more informed way to provide the best possible education for our children.
