In this forum, we explored initiatives designed to enable teachers to participate in and lead educational research.

We critically considered:

  • The policy drives that have shaped the Teachers as Researchers agenda
  • The processes involved in teachers acting as researchers
  • The roles that emerge among teachers and academics through the shift

Discussion 1

The outcomes of this forum were a research agenda for the field and a schedule of future events and collaborations.
