ACTION RESEARCH SEES PRACTITIONERS TAKE OWNERSHIP AND LEAD DISCUSSIONS IN TEACHING AND LEARNING – AND WE’RE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU.


It’s great to read that Maggie Gregson (Interview, page 10) sees a growing and critical mass of research-active practitioners across the sector. Being able to identify what is working with your learners, what isn’t, and working to understand why, is a crucial part of being a reflective practitioner. But the benefits of action research


go beyond individual practice. It’s about practitioners taking ownership and leading the discussions in teaching and learning. That’s why we are doing more to


support you to join this growing number of action researchers. We started with research competitions and the practitioner research special interest digest. Now we are working with the Learning and Skills Research Network (LSRN) to promote research events to SET members and are supporting #FEResearchmeets across the country.

Teacher of the Year 2019, and supported by SET Member Jo Fletcher-Saxon, #FEResearchMeets are free, conference- style events for practitioners across the sector to engage in action research.

All the presenters are practitioners, teachers, lecturers or tutors in the post-compulsory education and training sector. For those keen to get involved, but


new to practitioner enquiry, they can present a ‘mini-meet’. These are informal and small-scale conversations with colleagues during a lunchtime to develop the idea. I’m glad to see that so many members


took up the invitation to join me at #FEResearchmeet Greater Manchester in November. We’d love to see even more of you at the #FEResearchMeet in Birmingham on 17 January 2020 at Halesowen College and hosted by SET Members Kerry Scattergood and Annie Pendrey. If you want to attend you can book your place now at: eventbrite.co.uk/e/fe-research-meet- birmingham-tickets-82207746583 If you have research that you would like to share, get in touch at membership. enquiries@etfoundation.co.uk
