CamSTAR Research Introduction

CamSTAR Teacher Research is supported through a suite of materials and a clear structure, which is accessed in this area of the website through password-protected school membership. The subheadings of this area are each linked to aspects of the research cycle; namely, Literature Review, formulating Research Questions, Collecting Data, managing Ethics in School, Analysing Data, and Writing Up and Sharing. These materials are unique to CamSTAR. The structure is designed to be flexible and adaptable, and not restrictive, but it provides a distinct methodology, rationale, and focus so that every Teacher can readily assimilate the process and carry out incisive and impactful research.

In joining CamSTAR, your school commits to supporting you in your research and in providing opportunities to share work in progress with colleagues.

CamSTAR in turn will offer web based and, where possible, face to face training and resources to help you identify your research questions, select appropriate methods to collect your data, and help you analyse and prepare your findings for sharing with colleagues. CamSTAR also offers Conferences so that teachers can share their research, opportunities to write up for a CamSTAR certificate, and to write up in the CamSTAR online Journal. We have also developed an ECT ‘arm’ with support and Conferences each year, designed especially for early career teachers.

CamSTAR introduces you to a like-minded group of colleagues whose professional interests will help shape and enhance your own research, and thereby your own teaching and your students’ learning.
