Excellent Teaching through Action Research

This year’s thematic focus, Action Research, is a systematic process for the reflective teacher to test and evaluate classroom practices to improve student learning.  The conference keynote speakers will define and outline a process for Action Research, provide several examples of Action Research projects conducted by community college faculty, and consult individually with faculty members interested in pursuing Action Research projects.
