Your Classroom as a Laboratory: Teacher Research at School and Beyond
- What is teacher research, and what is it good for?
- What kinds of investigations have teachers conducted in their classrooms, and what can we learn from them?
- How can schools support teacher research?
In this interactive workshop, Marilyn Cochran-Smith will show how educators can go from questions about their own practice to studies that illuminate their work with students and provide insight for others, using examples of research other teachers have conducted. Teachers will have the opportunity to frame research questions related to their practice, while school leaders will learn about the conditions in schools that make teacher research possible.
Dr. Cochran-Smith is the Cawthorne Professor of Teacher Education for Urban Schools at the Lynch School of Education, Boston College. A leader in teacher education for more than 40 years, professor Cochran-Smith is a frequent presenter nationally and internationally and is widely known for her work on teacher education research, policy and practice and her sustained commitment to inquiry and social justice.
