Recently I put a shout out to see if anyone had an action plan template to support teachers to engage with research. After having little luck I decided to make my own.
To start with the user should consider what they want to achieve exactly to develop the ‘big picture’. Next link that to the school or subject development plan.
Baseline indicators are anything that would provide a base line to measure from such as student starting points, progress data, attitude to learning scores/grades or confidence levels. Anything that helps the user to measure success or impact.
The measures of success are simply what the user will measure afterwards to demonstrate an impact.
This is followed by identifying areas of further investigation such as theories, case studies or ideas. This section encourages the user to consider who may be able to help them find out more and the variety of sources that could be used.
The final section is the research journey an outline of what will be implemented, tested and how it will be carried out before an outline of the expected results.
Here’s mine for my PD research this year:
