Research in Action

Research in Action engages teachers and administrators from all over the state and the nation in work that improves practice and addresses emerging questions in education today.

In a unique professional learning experience, participants directly observe teaching practice, interview teachers about their approaches, and learn new strategies. In our quest to find answers for our own students, we share our successes, our challenges, and our questions with Research in Action participants.

Programs are developed and scheduled throughout the year. Please check back regularly or contact Christy Gabbard ( with questions.

If you are unable to participate in a Research in Action professional learning experience during the year, visit our Summer Institutes page to find our summer program offerings.
