Action Research (UGotClass)


Adult Enrichment / Computers & Technology -
UGotClass Fall 22

Action research is a form of investigation designed to attempt to solve problems and improve professional practices. It involves systematic observations and data collection which can be then used by the practitioner-researcher in reflection and decision-making. Discover the features of action research and how it can be directly applied to answer questions and solve problems in collaboration with others in your specific professional context. Come away with the ability to develop an action research plan to partner with your key stakeholders to collect data, analyze data, and determine findings to address this curiosity or solve the problem.

This class can be taken individually or as part of the Statistics for Decision Making Certificate - For more information, go to our Online Professional Development Certificates & Courses FAQ
