Action Research in the E-Learning Environment™ Online

Course Description:

Action research is a process of inquiry and reflection where educators use research techniques to systematically examine their personal instructional practice. In the e-learning environment, action research takes on a new dimension as educators integrate technology into traditional research methodologies. Discover online data collection techniques, interpret the data to affect change in the online classroom, and develop a research plan that integrates e-learning technology and supports teacher research.

Please note that, for an authentic  learning experience in this course, you will need to be a current classroom teacher and/or have access to students or a learning community where you can observe others, reflecting on and sharing your experiences.
