A cross-college approach to supporting teacher research


Kaye Thomas, Macclesfield College


The resource offers a simple and practicable approach to supporting teacher research in College Higher Education settings. It is primarily aimed at facilitating teacher research activity in settings where there are small numbers of HE students and teachers and provides a template for a collaborative cross-institutional working which offers an ‘economy of scale’ solution to supporting teacher research (it can be easily adapted to suit individual organisations).
