Practitioner-Researchers: Developing and Implementing Action Research Studies in Deafblindness

Interveners and Qualified Personnel

Posted by Gail Leslie, 8 Days Ago


June 21, 2017
12pm PT - 1pm MT - 2pm CT - 3pm ET  90 Minutes


This webinar will support practitioners in deafblindness in applying their practice expertise to the development and implementation of action research/practitioner research studies that can be carried out in their current employment settings. Action research is a problem solving research that is responsive to complex contexts, such as classrooms. Collaborative action research may involve entire teams who are focused in addressing a question of interest. This presentation will introduce practitioners to the action research process: identifying a problem, forming a research question, determining and then implementing the intervention, collecting and analyzing data, changing the intervention in response to data (through additional action cycles) and dissemination. The participant will be provided with resources to build their knowledge and skills beyond this webinar. 


Susan M. Bruce, Ph.D., is a Professor of Special Education at Boston College, Chair of the Department of Teacher Education, Special Education, Curriculum and Instruction, and Coordinator of the Masters Degree Program in Severe Disabilities with an optional specialization in deafblindness.  Susan’s research concentrations are in assessment, communication intervention for prelinguistic and early linguistic learners, and collaborative action research.
