Abstract

This research was developed as a professional development course attended by more than 150 teachers from primary and secondary schools in London and Kent in the last 4 years. Data was collected through interviews, reports, evaluation surveys, and field notes from facilitators. We developed an innovative model that supported the process of facilitation of action research and collaboration between facilitators and participants. It identified five steps of the development of teacher-led action research and highlighted the issues and challenges for each step: 1. Defining the field of action; 2. Planning; 3. Action; 4. Evaluation and 5. Reflection/(Re)planning. The model can be used as a framework to enhance the development of teacher-led research in schools.
