It will emphasize the application of relevant theories in practice for enhancing student learning. The project requires the demonstration of competence and skills in collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and reporting empirical research data within the mode of practitioner-based action research. Participants will be supported by tutors in the design and conduction of their projects, and the learning of this course will take place authentically through actions in school, and in collaboration with school teachers.
