Action Research in Theory with David Powell – Universal Learning with Saj Mohammad #8

Action Research in Theory with @DavidPowellHud – Universal Learning with Saj Mohammad #8

This is the first episode in a two-part special on action research, a term used to describe research that is done by practitioners themselves in the environments they work in. If it’s done well, it can greatly improve our practice which results in better outcomes for students.

In part one, I’m talking to David Powell about action research in theory. David is a senior lecturer in teacher educator based at the University of Huddersfield and he promotes the use of action research.

David covers a huge amount of ground including how action research is about values as well as methodology, why messiness in research can be a good thing, and how brave research can lead us to a world worth living in.

What lessons can we take from inclusive practice to open up learning to all?

For example, making things easy to read and using clear language helps dyslexic and autistic learners. But shouldn’t it be part of our normal routine when planning teaching, learning, and assessment?

In this podcast series “Universal Learning with Saj Mohammad“, I speak to professionals inside and outside education, as well as parents, carers, and learners themselves about their experiences of inclusion and what lessons we can all learn to make learning as universal as possible.
