Student-teachers As Researchers: Towards A Professional Development Orientation in Teacher Education. Possibilities and Limitations in the Greek University
This study has two goals: it investigates how to design a university undergraduate course on action research; and It also explores how the students’ involvement in action research influences the construction of their personal educational theory. The findings reveal that educational action research can be taught to students if it is praxis oriented, linking theory and practice within reflective action. The students also managed to practically link action research and collaborative action learning, approaching teaching as learning to a certain extent and realising that learning is predicated on active experience and improved through cyclical processes.
