Q. Action Research. Research? Sounds a bit academic to me, the sort of thing university lecturers get up to. Am I getting it wrong?

A. It is both intellectually demanding and immensely practical. It might also be relevant to university lecturers who are trying to improve their practice for the benefit of their students, but the main focus of it is for teachers in schools, who can decide what it is they want to improve, go about doing it, evaluating it, and then sharing their newly acquired insights with others.
