Happy New Year!
Over the Christmas break many of our students have been working hard to complete their qualifications. As a result, we have had 4 students successfully complete their Action Research papers as part of their Diploma in Education and Training (DET) qualification. These Action Research papers are based on real-life studies and reflect on current practices and how to improve them. Each student comes from a different background and industry, and this week is no exception, with four diverse and interesting papers:
Ian Jones looks at the student motivation and reluctance to participate in first aid training.
Nicki Sanders considers a different approach to the teaching methods for British Sign Language
Elizabeth Blamire analyses whether her feedback is effective for her students
Sarah Dagless makes a case for switching to assignment rather than exam-based assessment within prisons
For these and other research papers, visit our Action Research page. With over 100 papers, use our search tool to look for specific areas (using keywords such as student motivation or teaching strategies) or authors. This really is an excellent free resource for all those who are interested in self-development within the teaching and training industry.
