Al Bateen's Presenting Findings Forum - the sharing of evidence based practice

 

Action research participants from Al Bateen Academy in Abu Dhabi presented their project findings to an audience of fellow educators from across the Emirate on Monday 8th May. Each participant shared the focus and findings of their research project and highlighted key recommendations for future practice. John Gardner, Assistant Principal commented:

 

“the research forum provided an excellent platform for the sharing of evidence based practice within the context of Abu Dhabi’s educational environment. The audience was able to take away a range of innovative ideas to employ within their own practice. These included: strategies to develop the impact of marking and assessment; parent engagement; behaviour for learning; flipped learning and the application of SMART target setting”.      

 

Join the Expansive Education Network and carry out your own action research enquiry to  develop capabilities in your learners to help them thrive in the real-world.  

     
       

'Working on enquiries in a cluster of schools like the Expansive Education group we have in Wiltshire is a powerful way for teachers to learn together and keep thinking creatively.'
