This EVO Project, led by a team of volunteer teacher educators and supported by several teacher associations, provided a hands-on introduction to inquiry-based teacher development, especially (though not exclusively) for teachers working in difficult circumstances (large classes, low-resource classrooms, etc.). The five-week workshop took participants through different stages of teacher-research, engaging them in practical activities to gradually build their confidence in teacher-research.
Here are the moderators of 'Classroom-based research for teacher development', introducing themselves.
Meet our team: lead-moderators and moderators
The first Classroom-based research for professional development EVO was held in January-February 2016 under the leadership of Kenan Dikilitas and Asli Saglam. The second and third EVOs, in January-February 2017 and 2018, were coordinated by Richard Smith, with Paula Rebolledo also in a leading role. January- February 2019 EVO was coordinated by Asli Saglam and Kenan Dikilitas.
