“Research is systematic, critical and self-critical enquiry which aims to contribute towards the advancement of knowledge and wisdom.”

Case Study Research in Educational Settings Michael Bassey (1999)

Educational Research is an important feature in school improvement and school transformation. Schools leaders are increasingly aware of the importance of supporting and encouraging teachers to select effective and efficient methods when planning pedagogic approaches and curriculum design as well as encouraging them to be involved in their own research in order to implement evidenced based practice in the classroom.
