Action research for professional development: an ideal or 'real' construct?

Session description

Presenter(s): 
Paula Rebolledo

Session details:

This talk reports on a PhD research which investigated the action research component of
an INSETT course in Chile, in order to explore how it may have influenced teachers’
classroom practices and contributed to their professional development. In this session I
will discuss the feasibility of action research in less supportive contexts and the factors
which may hinder its occurrence.
