Developing Action Research , Churchill Community College, Tuesday, 11. February 2020

This workgroup will work in conjunction with a local university or research school to develop skills in applying evidence based research in Maths into practice. The programme will develop teachers  understanding on how to critically analyse research to make a judgement about its validity and how to assess research to make a judgement about its reliability. The workgroup will also focus on how to plan for the implementation of research and how to evaluate the impact of their research.
 This programme will be held at Churchill Community College, Wallsend and run on the following dates:
11th February 2020 - Full day session
10th March 2020 - Half day session
6th May 2020 - Half day session
3rd June 2020 - Full day session
Who is this for?
Teachers across the primary and secondary phase who have identified a particular challenge which they need to overcome in the teaching and learning of mathematics.
What is involved?
**** to **** workshops with the work group lead(s)
Gap tasks to gauge a baseline and develop practice
Contribution to the online communities
Contribution to evaluate the impact of the programme
Intended Outcomes
Professional learning Teachers will understand how to critically analysing research to make a judgement about its validity. Teachers will  understand how to assess research to make a judgement about its reliability. Teachers will select research with a clear rationale based on the needs of their setting. Teachers will understand how to plan for the implementation of research. Teachers will understand how to evaluate the impact of their research.
Practice development
Teachers and leadership teams of the workgroup schools will no longer seek to implement research without taking it on **** value.
School policy
The positive findings of the research will be implemented into school policy to meet the needs of the setting.
Pupil Outcomes
Pupils will benefit from the school using research based evidence effectively. More specific pupil outcomes will vary depending on the nature of the research that the school will adopt.
Expectations of participants and their schools
All participants are expected to attend all the sessions and complete gap tasks in their schools between the sessions. They will also be asked to keep a learning log for their own use and contribute to the national evaluation process, probably through a short online survey after the Work Group has finished.
This programme is provided at no cost to state-funded schools. However, Great North Maths Hub will charge £40 for non-attendance or cancellation less than 7 days prior to each session. Independant schools can contact us for programme costs.
When booking you will be asked to give your NCETM Username. We ask for this as we will use the NCETM website to coordinate your programme evaluations, in order to report to the DfE. If you do not already have an NCETM username, please create one here
Data Privacy
As part of our role in leading the Great North Maths Hub, we collect and hold a certain amount of data about individuals involved in our work. The data includes name, role (with respect to hub work), school, email address, NCETM username and (in some cases) telephone number. The agreement between us and the Department of Education requires us to monitor and evaluate our work as a Maths Hub, and this is the legal basis for the data that we hold, on, for example, participation in the Work Groups that we coordinate. Such data is reported on a regular basis to the NCETM.
