NCDB Webinar: Developing and Implementing Action Research Studies in Deafblindness

Interveners and Qualified Personnel

Posted by Gail Leslie, 6 Mo. Ago


June 21, 2017
10am HAT - 11am AKT - 12pm PT - 1pm MT - 2pm CT - 3pm ET  (90 Minutes)


Action research is a type of problem-solving research that is responsive to complex contexts, such as classrooms. Collaborative action research may involve entire teams, focused on addressing a question of interest. This presentation will introduce practitioners to the action research process, which involves: identifying a problem, forming a research question, determining and then implementing an intervention, collecting and analyzing data, changing the intervention in response to data (through additional action cycles), and dissemination. Resources will be provided that participants can use to build their knowledge and skills beyond the 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 Master's 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.
