Action Research

The Research into Practice Program is an innovative teacher professional development initiative that combines cognitive science and design thinking to tackle classroom challenges. It unpacks complex issues into actionable steps through a three-stage innovation process: Explore (understand and define learning challenges), Design (ideate and experiment solutions), and Change (reflect and implement practices).

This approach fosters a new mindset in teachers, encouraging openness, collaboration, optimism, bravery, and a deeper understanding of educational 'whys'. Outcomes of the program include changes in teacher perceptions, putting research into action, making staff learning purposeful, focusing staff meetings on learner needs, and celebrating achievements with the 'Cognition First' badge.
