Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This presentation will offer the results of an action/field research project that will begin in early 2011. The purpose of the research is to directly engage the 2009-2010 MEd Graduates in reflecting, documenting, and sharing the process of how they have been implementing or initiating changes in schools, the challenges they face, the support they get, what works, what doesn’t, and why.

The qualitative design of this action research study will include both the researchers and the research participants in an attempt to understand the current situation of the research participants who are working in the field (teachers, school leaders, and government officers), the support they are receiving, and the socio-cultural context of schools. Research methods will include observations of classroom and leadership practice, in-depth interviews of government officers and school leaders, and documentation of action-reflections by the MEd participants. The research will be conducted in the field during visits and through ongoing communication with the participants. One of the action research participants will be included in the CIES panel to provide a first-hand account of the research project and his experience in action-reflection in the field.

The research will inform the IED-BRACU MEd and the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education about the MEd program effectiveness and changes required in course content, methodology, and design, through listening to the experiences and empowering the leadership practitioners. In addition, the work will expand the body of knowledge on education and educational leadership in Bangladesh.
