Would you like to enhance your practice and make a difference?
If so, then read on.
We are inviting you to our next meeting of the Network for Educational Action Research in Ireland (NEARI) which takes place in UCD on September 16th from 10.15 to 14.30. You can see some of our ideas at http://eari.ie.
We are an independent, non-profit organisation and our members are a cross sectoral group of teachers and educators.
Our theme for this meeting is: ‘Validity in Action Research’.
All are welcome to this opportunity to meet up and network with other action researchers.
Following the success of our ‘Round Robin’ presentations at previous NEARI-meets, we invite anyone who wishes to do so, to give a short talk or presentation (maximum 10 mins). This could be about the theme of the day, or on your action research, or you may wish to share a reading from the literature that inspired you. Please let Cornelia Connolly know (CORNELIA.CONNOLLY@nuigalway.ie), so we can tweak our schedule accordingly.
Please email Cornelia Connolly know (CORNELIA.CONNOLLY@nuigalway.ie) by 5pm on 9th September to reserve a seat for the event. We will then send you details of the location of the venue and a map.
