As a way of further developing your action research and communicating your ideas to your classmates, you now have the opportunity to accomplish both while providing feedback to your class peers. The purpose of this process is twofold. First, it promotes your critical thinking and, second, it gives you an opportunity to share your experiences in the research design. In summary, the process of providing collaborative feedback builds capacity in your thought process and in the implementation of your action research study. Respond to the following prompts in relation to your own study in detailed, yet succinctly written paragraphs.Your initial post functions as a springboard for peers and the instructor to respond to you with constructive ideas and feedback about your study. You share your Action Research Proposal with peers to obtain ideas and feedback on your proposal. If you have already identified a change to your proposal (e.g., research questions, population, setting, intervention, data collection techniques or personnel involved in your project) make those changes before you share your presentation. Respond to two peers, preferably those that have not yet had responses, and provide constructive feedback and questions regarding their Action Research Proposal. Ask clarifying questions to assist with their process of deepening their study. Some questions to consider as you respond to your peers include: Is the area of focus clearly stated (you know what they are centered on for their study)? Is there direct alignment between the research question(s) and area of focus statement (do they match up logically?) Are the research questions potentially answerable? What suggestions can you provide regarding their actual intervention/innovation? (Is it appropriate/suitable)? Do the data collection techniques align with the research questions and are they manageable? Remember, though two replies is the basic expectation, for deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you (including the instructor) before the last day of the discussion to allow for adequate time for responses. This will further the conversation while also giving you opportunities to demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real world experiences with this topic.
